    Coq au Vin

    Im making this wonderful dish for my friends super bowl sunday using 2 big crockpots.

    4 slices bacon, diced
    4 chicken breast halves without skin
    4 chicken thighs without skin* I use only thighs breast always seems to dry out to fast
    2 medium onions, quartered
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 teaspoon thyme
    1/2 teaspoon marjoram
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 cup beef stock
    1 cup red wine

    1/2 pound mushrooms, halved
    1 bay leaf
    4 tablespoons parsley, chopped

    In heavy skillet, cook the bacon until transluscent. Remove.
    Brown the chicken in the bacon fat, seasoning with s/p to taste.
    Remove to crockpot. Saute onions, garlic, and herbs 3-4 minutes,
    then melt in 2 T. butter and add the flour. Stir until the roux
    begins to thicken. Gradually add in the stock and wine. Pour over
    chicken in crockpot, mix in mushrooms, add the bay leaf. Cover
    and cook for 2-3 hours on medium.
