    • 6 chicken thighs , bone-in, skin on or off
    • Salt and pepper to season
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 pounds | 1 kg baby potatoes , quartered
    • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
    • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
    • 1 small yellow pepper, deseeded and diced
    • 1 small red pepper, deseeded and diced
    • 2 medium-sized carrot, peeled and sliced
    • 14 oz | 410g can chopped tomatoes
    • 1 14 oz | 400g bottle tomato passata
    • 150 ml red wine (optional -- substitute with beef broth)
    • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
    • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
    • 1 teaspoon each dried basil and oregano
    • 1 cube bullion (beef), crushed
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    (OPTIONAL STEP): Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a small amount of oil in a pan or skillet. Sear skin-side down (if using skin on thighs) first for 3 minutes, until deep golden brown. Rotate and sear the other side for a further 3 minutes.
    1. Arrange the potatoes in a 6qt slow cooker bowl in single layer. Place the chicken over the potatoes; and add the rest of the ingredients over the chicken (except olives and mushrooms). Stir to combine; cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours, until the chicken is tender and falling off the bone. Add in the mushrooms and olives in the last 30 minutes of cooking. Season with extra salt, to your tastes and serve.
