Did You Know?
This robust chicken dish, known as Coq au Vin in France, gets its wonderful flavor and rich color from the red wine and bacon. It is usually prepared with bone-in chicken pieces, but we found that boneless chicken thighs work best in the slow cooker. The chicken becomes very tender and will fall apart into pieces for easier serving.
Substitution
If you prefer not to use red wine, you still can make a delicious chicken dish your family will love. Just increase the chicken broth to 2 cups and leave out the wine.
