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.
If you prefer not to use red wine, you can still make a delicious chicken dish your family will love. Just add extra chicken broth in place of the wine.
