My brother's favorite! I brown the meat and assemble everything in the crock pot sleeve the night before. The morning of the day I want to serve it, I place it in the crock pot, turn it on, and leave. Six hours later you have a dish that tastes like you've been cooking for hours!

Ingredients

2 slice

3 pound or larger chicken, cut into 8 pieces

garlic, minced
2 Tbsp
tomato paste
6 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1 tsp

1 bottle
750 ml burgundy wine
2 c
low-sodium chicken stock
8 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until brown and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the fat in the skillet.
2
Brown the chicken on both sides in the bacon fat, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken with tongs and place in the sleeve of a 3-quart or larger crock pot.
3
Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for one minute.
4
Whisk in the tomato paste, flour, salt, pepper, thyme and parsley and cook for one minute.
5
Slowly whisk in the wine and chicken stock until there are no lumps. Bring the mixture to a simmer and simmer for one minute.
6
Place the mushrooms and pearl onions in the crock pot with the chicken. Pour over the wine mixture. Cover and cook on low for six hours.
7
Serve with the crispy bacon bits and some fresh parsley sprinkled over the top.
