I have some chicken thighs. Might modify the recipe here.

Do you chop the onions? When do you use the 2 T of olive oil? Where in the grocery store can you find the tapioca? Thanks!

Hi Sandy! Sorry , I should have said that the onion is chopped! And I add the oil to the onions before microwaving. Also, the last time I made this, I left the mushrooms out of the microwave and just added them to the Slow Cooker without microwaving and it was better. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
