I was just thinking (dangerous I know...) since the chicken needs time in the liquid to get tender couldn't you cook the carrots in the same liquid at the same time to save a pan? Or is there a particular reason you did it seperately?

Thank you I am planning to make this when Fiance arrives home this week!

Yes you could do that, but there is a particular reason that I don't --- That being -- On my palate carrots have a sweet, at times over powering flavor in soups and stews --- I don't like that, so I always par-boil/precook, and drain carrots before adding them to any dish... If you cooked the carrots in with the stew it would ruin it for me. It just would not be the same --- The flavors I like would be lost ---However, feel free to ---

Have Fun & Enjoy!

Looks great Uncle Bob. I love chicken thighs and use them almost exclusively especially when using my slow cooker. Thighs have so much more flavor and the meat holds up well. I even use them in addition to a whole chicken when making broth.
Great looking dish, copied and saved.

Just what I was looking for today, and look who came up with the answer!
Wouldn't hurt to fix a little rice on the side, would it?

Looks great Bob, but I take exception to your instructions to "rough chop" the carrots. Your pic definitely shows carrots in halved "logs", not "roughly chopped". "Roughly chopped" carrots, as I interpret the term, would not only virtually disintegrate in this stew, but are definitely not what's in the pic. You may want to amend your instructions. :)

I will be trying this (albeit without the corn as youngest son won't eat corn). I love chicken thighs and can get them quite cheap.
