Coq Au Vin

This is one of our family favorite Slow Cooker meals!  It's equally as delicious every time I make it!  When you tell people you are making Coq Au Vin for dinner, you automatically sound extremely fancy!  LOL  So, go with it!  LOL  You are an honorary French Chef when you make this meal for your family!

Best of all, this recipe has very few ingredients and isn't difficult at all to put together!  You're going to feel like such a rock star when you make this for your family or for company!

Here it is!

Coq Au Vin

6 Chicken thighs
1 onion, sliced into rings
8 oz. Baby Bella mushrooms, sliced
1 cup red wine
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste 
Rice or Noodles to accompany

Heat the olive oil in a skillet.  Salt and pepper one side of your chicken thighs and place them seasoned-side down in the skillet.

While that side is cooking, season the second side.  Once the first side is browned, flip it and brown the other side.  Once both sides are browned, arrange them in bottom of your Slow Cooker.
In the same skillet you browned the chicken, add the wine, onions and mushrooms.  Cook until just softened, about 5 minutes.
Pour this mixture over the top of the chicken in the Slow Cooker and sprinkle with the Italian Seasoning.
Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
Serve over rice or noodles.

TIPS:  All of this can be done the night before, stuck in the liner and put in the fridge.  Buy pre-sliced mushrooms to help cut down on prep time! :)
