  4. Sprinkle chicken pieces evenly with salt and pepper.
  5. Add chicken to skillet; brown for 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden.
  6. Transfer to a 4 quart slow cooker.
  7. Reduce heat in skillet to medium, adding garlic to drippings; sauté for 1 minute or until garlic begins to brown.
  8. Stir in broth mixture from step #1, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
  9. Boil for approximately 2 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 1 cup.
  10. Pour sauce over chicken; sprinkle with thyme.
  11. Cover. Cook on Low for 4 hours or until chicken is done.
