Love making this dish! It's super easy and looks fancy when it's done. I always seem to have open red wine on hand and making this is a great way to use it up! The chicken soaks up the red wine and bacon flavor and stays tender. Garnish with fresh parsley and a rosemary sprig and enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook chicken breasts in hot oil until browned on both sides, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer browned chicken to a slow cooker.

  • Cook bacon in the same skillet, turning occasionally, over medium-heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to the slow cooker.

  • Stir red wine, chicken stock, garlic, rosemary, bay leaf, salt, and pepper into the slow cooker.

  • Cook chicken mixture in the slow cooker set to Low until chicken is tender, 4 to 5 hours.

Cook's Note:

The best turn out I have found is to put the slow cooker on high and warm all the ingredients while the chicken and bacon are cooking. Turn to low when you put the chicken in. You can also add mushrooms and onions for a one and done meal.
