Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are less expensive than breasts and stay tender and flavorful during long cooking times. If you can’t find golden beets, add an additional parsnip (don’t use red beets, or the mixture will turn pink).

Directions
  1. Combine first 10 ingredients (chicken through broth) in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6–7 hours, or high for 4–5 hours.
  2. During the last 15 minutes of cooking, remove and discard rosemary. Stir in pressed garlic and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Shower with parsley and serve.
