Slow Cooker Coq au Vin (Chicken in Wine)

Monday nights are crockpot nights for us. This past Monday I experimented with a dish I’ve only had in French class – Coq au Vin. It turned out so perfect that Aleyah said it smelled like a restaurant when I opened the lid!

Slow Cooker Coq au Vin

  • 4 chicken breasts

  • 3 cups broth

  • 1 cup merlot

  • 1 cup pearl onions (I used frozen)

  • 1 cup diced celery

  • 1 cup diced carrots

  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced 

  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 tablespoons whole grain flour

  • 2 teaspoons herbs de Provence

  • 2 sprigs fresh Rosemary

  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme

  • Salt and pepper to taste 

  • Olive oil

Drizzle bottom of slow cooker with olive oil. Add in carrots, celery, onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Stir. Cover and cook on high about 30 min. Season breasts with salt and pepper and herbs de Provence. Whisk flour into broth. Place chicken into crockpot and slowly pour in wine and broth. Place herb sprigs on top of chicken. Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours. 

I served this with my garden fresh ratatouille and whole grain pasta to keep the entire meal in line with traditional French cuisine! 🇫🇷
