  • 1 whole chicken (3 1/2 to 4 pounds), cut into 6 to 8 pieces and patted dry
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 cup dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup couscous
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for serving



Step 1

Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. In batches, cook chicken, skin side down, until skin is golden brown, about 4 minutes.

Combine onion, garlic, and thyme in a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Top with chicken, skin side up, in a tight layer. In a small bowl, whisk together wine and flour until smooth and add to slow cooker. Cover and cook on high until chicken is tender, about 3 1/2 hours (or 7 hours on low). Cook couscous according to package instructions. Serve chicken and sauce over couscous, sprinkled with parsley.
