Crockpot Coq au Vin

I already have a recipe similar to this on here, but this one was pretty good, and wow was it easy!

Crockpot Coq au Vin


6 to 8 frozen chicken thighs
6 slices cooked and crumbled bacon
8 oz sliced baby portabella mushrooms
1 cup baby carrots
1 chopped yellow onion
3 cloves chopped or minced garlic
1/2 t black pepper
1/2 t kosher salt
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cup cheap red wine
2 large fresh thyme sprigs

The Directions.

Cook your bacon. Dump the frozen chicken into your crockpot and start layering in the rest of the ingredients. This is really a no-fuss preparation. Just throw it all in.

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. (I actually used fresh chicken and think I went about 6-7 hours). You could cook it on high for 4, but it won't taste as good. The flavors meld so nicely when cooked low and slow.
Serve with mashed potatoes or your favorite gluten free pasta.
