    1. 1
      Peel and slice garlic cloves. Cut chicken into pieces, or use thighs. Put in large bowl with bay leaves, thyme, and garlic. Pour enough wine over chicken to cover. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator overnight.
    2. 2
      Dice bacon. Fry until crisp. Remove to paper towel. Saute mushrooms in bacon drippings, adding oil or butter if needed, until they begin to brown.
    3. 3
      Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Pat chicken dry with paper towel. Brown chicken pieces in oil or butter, on all sides.
    4. 4
      Peel and slice carrots into 1/2 inch pieces. Put onions and carrots in bottom of crock pot. Add chicken, mushrooms and bacon . Stir tomato paste into 2 cups of wine marinade (with garlic pieces and bay leaves) and pour over all. Discard remaining marinade. Cover and cook on low setting 6 hours.
    5. 5
      Remove chicken to platter and keep warm. Stir cornstarch into 1/4 cup water and add to sauce. Turn to high and cook until thickened. (You may want to use more cornstarch, depending on how thick you want gravy.) Stir in salt and pepper to taste. Return chicken to pot and serve with mashed potatoes or rice.

      The base flavors of this recipe are good but it just didn't work in the crockpot. The sauce never thickened up even after adding 3 times the corn starch and waiting another hour. I ended up pouring the sauce into a pan and boiling it for 10 mins on there. Of course I now had too much corn starch so it got super thick. Next time I will just make this on the stove.

      I looked at a LOT of Coq Au Vin recipes, and used this one. It got RAVE reviews from everyone that ate it! I was a bit worried when I pulled the chicken out of the marinade and it was deep purple...but, all was great in the end! I did add a bunch more carrots (a whole bag of baby carrots) and mushrooms, and also some stock to the crockpot. But, this was wonderful. Thank you!

      The amount of prep it took for this recipe is well worth it when you are done. I used boneless skinless chicken tenders (they're about 1.5" wide and 5" to 6" long) and cut them in thirds. Probably didn't need to do even that since the chicken we so tender after being cooked the pieces fell apart while serving. I used nearly all of the Burgandy (only about 1/2 cup left) and it made a lot of the wonderful gravy. The only thing I didn't like as much was the mushrooms were pretty salty since they were done in the bacon grease. Next time I will do in butter. May also use turkey bacon next time. Will definately make again!
