Holy Cow this was good! The picture does not do the flavor of this dish justice. It was sooooooo delicious! Traditionally Coq au Vin is made with chicken thighs and served with mashed potatoes, but here I simplified everything by making it in the crock pot with boneless, skinless breasts and serving it with little baby bakers. If you are a Coq au Vin fan you will not be diasappointed.
Slow Cooker Coq au Vin
nonstick cooking spray
4 large chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1 envelope onion soup mix
8 0z. quartered mushrooms
1 large shallot, sliced
1 cup baby carrots
1/2 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup water
Lightly coat large skillet and brown chicken pieces (I cut my breasts into halves). Drain off fat.
In crock pot, spray the inside of the cooker and place browned chicken in the bottom. Sprinkle with dry soup mix. Add mushrooms, shallots, and carrots. Pour wine and water over all.
Place on low for 6 hours, or high for 3, and stir it every once in a while. Serve with potatoes or egg noodles.
