Hey there, and a very happy New Year! I’m so glad to be back at Sarah’s, it’s Jane from Jane’s Adventures in Dinner and I’ve got something really scrumptious for you this month.
I love this Slow Cooker Coq au Vin recipe so much that I’m reposting it. This is actually my very first time republishing a recipe, because up until now I’ve always had something else that I’m dying to try out and want an excuse to cook. This Coq au Vin recipe is so easy and delicious, however, that I’ve made it at least a half a dozen times since publishing the recipe on Adventures, so I knew it would be just perfect for here.
DON’T YOU LOVE A ONE POT MEAL?
One pot to clean, one pot to choose, and if you are really clever the same pot can be used for leftovers. And we all know how clever you all are.
YEP, A FIVER
One pot meals are especially wonderful to stretch your grocery dollar, too. This dish photographs so beautifully that you would never guess that it was made with a $5.00 chicken. Yep, a fiver. Chickens go on sale every-so-often in my local grocery store (great chickens: hormone-free, organic, and cheap), and when I spot them I fill my freezer.
A CLASSIC, NOW EVEN EASIER
I decided to make this classic one pot meal: Coq au Vin (chicken with wine) even easier by preparing it in my Slow Cooker. I’ve actually used my Slow Cooker a whole bunch of times for this dish, but it wasn’t until my sister-in-law asked about it that I actually wrote it down.
