Coq au vin

If you have followed my posts then you can tell I’m not the most organized person in the world 🙂 So if I forget to add something that is important to you, like servings, prep or cook time, please feel free to bug me with that and I will answer as soon as I can 😉 I just get so excited about posting/sharing, I guess you can call me premature blog poster 🙂edit-3Coq au vin

……or chicken in wine. It was on my list for a long time and I finally did it since we are going to Paris this summer and need to practice eating French cuisine!

2 pounds chicken fillet

* actually it called for whole chicken cut into parts but I just dislike cutting chicken that has bones in it.

1/4 cup flour

8 slices bacon, chopped

1 onion

1 small can button mushrooms

3 potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes

4 cloves or 2 tsp garlic *I use the garlic in oil from a jar

1 bay leaf

1/2 tsp thyme

1/4 chopped parsley * I used dried

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 ground pepper

1 cup red wine

1 cup chicken stock

1. In a bowl or a zip lock bag (I found it easier) dredge chicken pieces in flour. Transfer to slow cooker stone wear.

edit-12. In a pan fry onions with bacon, until crisp. Transfer into slow cooker, without the liquid.

3. Add onions, mushrooms, potatoes, garlic, parsley, thyme, bay leaf, salt, pepper, wine and stock.

edit-24. Cover and cook on low for 6- 8 hours, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork. Discard bay leaf.

We just let it sit on low in the slow cooker overnight. Put it on before bed and it was done in the morning! That was the easiest meal I have ever done! Oh and btw, it woke me up at 4.30 am with an amazing smell! 😉

And it’s amazing! Next – Beef bourguignon!

Serves 4 people 😉
