This is adapted from Real Simple.  I use turkey bacon for joe.

* 1/2 pound sliced bacon, diced
* 1 4- to 6-pound chicken, cut up
* 1/2 cup dry white wine
* 1/2 pound small white mushrooms
* 1 cup frozen small white onions, thawed. you can also just cut up some onions
* 6 garlic cloves, chopped
* 3 sprigs fresh rosemary (or 1 tablespoon dried rosemary leaves)
* 1 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1/4 cup water
* 2 tablespoons cornstarch
1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat until crisp. With a slotted spoon, transfer it to a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Pour off all but a light coating of fat from the skillet. Add the chicken and brown over medium-high heat; transfer to the cooker.
2. Pour the wine into the skillet and scrape up any browned bits; add the skillet contents to the cooker, along with the mushrooms, onions, garlic, rosemary, and salt. Cover and cook on low heat for 6 hours, or on high for 3 hours.
3. Transfer the chicken, bacon, and vegetables to a platter; keep warm. Pour the sauce into a small saucepan. Combine the water and cornstarch; stir it into the sauce. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Pour over the chicken.
