Slow Cooker Cassoulet

3 chicken leg quarters
1 onion, quartered and thinly sliced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 (15 ounce) cans white beans, drained and rinsed
(I used a can of pinto beans and a can of northern beans)
4 hot sausage, cook and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/2 cup white cooking wine


Place the chicken into the bottom of a slow cooker. Stir together the onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, cannellini beans, and sausage in a large bowl. Pour the mixture over the chicken in the slow cooker, and pour the wine over all the ingredients. Cover, set the cooker to Low, and cook until the chicken is very tender and the cassoulet is thickened, 5 to 6 hours.


As the chicken was still a bit frozen when I put this together I cooked on high setting for the last hour.

As I used what I had on hand my ingredients are a bit different but this is very, very tasty. This is going in my keeper recipe file!

mmmm mmmm good!


  1. Sounds really good. I have a similar recipe for it uses chicken breasts. I'm going to have to give this a try. I've got a pot roast in the slow cooker for dinner tonight. L-o-v-e those good slow cooker recipes, don't you?

  2. I love using my crockpot. I used it a lot when I was a young working mom. What a time saver that was - and how nice to walk into ones home after a long day's work and to smell good food ready and waiting for you.

  3. That sounds so yummy! My family all loves dark meat, and I'm a white meat kinda girl. But, I bet it would be good by throwing in the whole chicken! I'll have to give my crock pot a work-out soon! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  4. Hi Glor, being MIA for awhile means I miss out on a lot. Your trip to Washington looks wonderful. I love that you took your hook and yarn and were able to create along the way. Love your doilies. The knitted blanket looks like what I was doing with the crocheted baby blanket, but didn't like the way it looked when I connected the squares. Maybe I'm too critical of my own work as I always love what everyone else does. Haven't been too creative lately. The blooms and blossoms around you are just beautiful. I miss all that being here. Have a great week. :) Tammy
