- Place mushrooms in small bowl; cover with 2 cups hot water. Let soak about 30 minutes or until hydrated. Strain soaking water through a coffee filter or cheesecloth to remove any grit; rinse mushrooms with cool water.
- Place mushrooms in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Generously season chicken with salt and pepper; arrange on top of mushrooms. Place onion, garlic, and rosemary on top of chicken. Pour 1 cup of mushroom soaking liquid and Marsala wine into slow cooker.
- Cover and cook about 6 hours on LOW heat or until chicken is no longer pink near bone (165°F on an instant read thermometer).*
