Crock Pot Coq Au Vin French Chicken Stew

11

When I was growing up, one of my favorite fall dinners was a simple french chicken stew that my mom made. Before the invention of the wonderful and convenient Crock Pot, we made one pot meals in big metal stew/stock pots and they simmered on the stove for hours. I took our family favorite Coq Au Vin and modified it for a crock pot and it was fantastic. The same delectable aromas filled our home and the savory flavor was just as I remembered it.
