Default New Recipes, Coq au Vin In The Crockpot

I'm doing all new meals for the next 2 months. My requirements are cheap and easy, also non processed.
This week is all crockpot meals. I will share each day as I make them.

Today I'm making coq au vin in the crockpot for lunch tomorrow. Recipe is as follows:
1 8 oz package mushrooms
1-2 onions, depending on size
4-8 chicken thighs
1 cup grape juice (more if you use over 4 chicken thighs)
Italian Seasoning

Directions:
Place a little bit of oil in a saute pan. Place Italian Seasoning and salt and pepper on the chicken. Brown the chicken thighs. Took me about 3 minutes a side.

Place chicken in bottom of crockpot.

Place onions and mushrooms in same saute pan. Add grape juice. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Place on top of chicken.

Cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low.

Yum!!!

If you are on the food plan, throw a whole grain roll or piece of bread at the dcks and call it good! You may want to add more mushrooms, depending on how many kids you have.

I need to utilize my crockpot more. I only do 4 things in there currently, Cornish hen, chili, meatballs w/bbq sauce, and roast w/potatoes and carrots.
