Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    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.
