Wine-sauced chicken and veggies

I went on a playdate with Joey with some of my school friends today. By the time I got back, I could smell this before I walked in the door. There's nothing like being greeted with the smell of a home-cooked meal :)

What's Needed:
4 medium red-skinned potatoes, quartered
2 C. frozen carrots
1 small onion, sliced
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 T. snipped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can fat-free chicken broth
1 C. dry white wine
3 T. butter
3 T. all-purpose flour

1. Place potatoes, carrots, and onion in crockpot. Place chicken on vegetables. Sprinkle with parsley, salt, rosemary, thyme, pepper, and garlic; add chicken broth and wine.

2. Cover; cook on LOW for 8-9 hours or on HIGH for 4-4.5 hours.

3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken and vegetables to a warm plate. Cover to keep chicken and vegetables warm.

4. For gravy: skim and discard fat from cooking juices; strain juices. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook for one minute. Add cooking juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more.
