  • 1 broiler-fryer chicken, cut up, or about 3 1/2 pounds chicken pieces

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1/4 cup dry white wine, or sherry

  • 1 cup chicken broth, or water

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  2. Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium heat and brown chicken on all sides.

  3. Transfer chicken to crock pot. Sprinkle with remaining oregano and garlic. Add wine or sherry to the sauté pan and stir to loosen brown bits; pour into slow cooker.
