Slow Cooker Coq Au Vin

Posted 2019-09-22 by finyfollow

The slow cooker tends to make all meat that much nicer and more tender.

This chicken was no exception with the meat falling off the bones.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 hours on medium
Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients
2 shortcut bacon slice, cut
285 g mushrooms, cut in half
1 cup pearl onions
1 kg chicken of choice pieces
½ medium onion
1 small carrot, chopped
2 garlic cloves
½ cup dry red wine
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 small bay leaf
½ cup chicken broth

Method
  • In a wok, cook the bacon over a medium heat until browned. Take out and refrigerate.

  • Meanwhile put the mushrooms and onions in a slow cooker - I fried the onions a bit first.

  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.

  • Cook the chicken till it is a bit brown over a medium heat - about 10 minutes - I missed this part but it should really be done as it seals in the flavour.

  • Put the chicken over the mushroooms in the slow cooker.


  • Add the carrot and stir in the garlic.

  • Add the wine, tomato paste, and bay leaf.

  • Pour the wine and broth over the chicken, cover and cook on low for about 8 hours or on high for about 4 hours.


  • to serve, throw out the bay leaf and transfer the chicken and sauce to a platter - sprinkle with the bacon.
