3 cloves garlic, minced
2 T olive oil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 teas kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 cup dry white wine
1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes coarsely chopped
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
10 bone-in chicken thighs
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley



1.  Cook onion in olive oil over medium high heat, stirring, until softened, 3 to 6 minutes. Add garlic, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper, celery seed and bay leaf and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add wine, bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, scraping up any browned bits. Add whole tomatoes and tomato sauce and stir well.

2. Place chicken thighs in a 4-quart pot or slow cooker. Pour the tomato mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook until the chicken is very tender, about 3 hours on High or 6 hours on Low. Remove the bay leaf.  Sprinkle with parsley and serve onto noodles or rice.
