Slow Cooker Recipe For Chicken Stew in White Wine

Sunday Slow Cooker: Chicken Stew in White Wine

After a long week of admittedly too much partying, I'm in the mood for an easy, nourishing meal. Tonight, I'll be using my slow cooker to make a bacon-flecked stew with white wine and a whole cut-up chicken, reminiscent of the French countryside favorite coq au vin.

Hours later, when the scent wafting from the crockpot tells me that dinner's ready, I'll enjoy it at the table with the rest of the leftover wine. Sound like a relaxing close to a long, busy week? Then make the recipe yourself when you read more.

Slow Cooker Recipe For Chicken Stew in White Wine 2010-03-19 12:07:49


  1. 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  2. Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  3. 1 chicken, 3 to 4 lb., cut into 8 serving pieces
  4. 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 3 bacon slices, chopped
  6. 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  7. 8 oz. white button mushrooms, quartered
  8. 1 lb. red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  9. 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  10. 4 fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs
  11. 3 fresh thyme sprigs
  12. 1 bay leaf
  13. 1-1/2 cups chicken stock
  14. 1-1/2 cups white wine


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss to coat evenly.
  2. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm half of the olive oil until just smoking. Add half of the chicken and brown on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes total. Transfer to a slow cooker. Repeat with the remaining oil and chicken. Add the bacon, onion, mushrooms, potatoes, garlic, parsley, thyme, bay leaf and stock to the slow cooker and stir to combine.
  3. Remove the sauté pan from the heat, pour the wine into the pan and return to medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from the pan bottom. Add the wine to the slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 5 hours according to the manufacturer's instructions. Remove the bay leaf before serving. Spoon the stew into bowls and serve immediately.

Serves 4.

Fen - I do my prep work right before bed almost every time I use the crock pot, and everything always keeps well and tastes delicious when it's done!

I've prepped this tonight in order to throw it into the slow cooker tomorrow morning before I leave for work. I'll use the low setting instead of the high (7-8 hours). I've cut up everything and stuck it in the fridge, I'm hoping it maintains it's freshness - I've never done it this way before! Can't wait to get home tomorrow and smell the stew waiting for me.
