Slow Cooker Coq au Vin

Really easy.

This is the tinned ingredients version.  It works.


8 boneless chicken thighs, skin removed

200g peeled shallots

lots of crushed garlic

25g butter

1 tablespoon flour seasoned with a little salt and ground black pepper

thyme, parsley, bay leaves

2 rashers of  streaky bacon

1 tin of button mushrooms

1 small tin of sliced mushrooms in sauce

1 cup red wine

1cup water, mixed with one tablespoon of tomato paste  and two teaspoons of concentrated vegetable stock (comes in a squeeze pack)

Dash of  Worcester sauce

Dash of angostura bitters

More ground black pepper to taste


Heat butter in a heavy bottomed pan, fry the bacon,  throw in the garlic and shallots and saute until soft.

Remove to the slow cooker, put the pan back on the heat

Roll the chicken in flour and throw the excess flour into the slow cooker.

Brown the chicken in the pan and throw into the slow cooker.

Throw everything else into the slow cooker

Cook slowly.



About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
