This is our Slow cooker Coq au Vin recipe, we went with chicken legs because this is perfect for the slow cooker, and delicious with red wine, the shallots and the bacon lardons.
The precise origins of coq-au-vin are unknown. Because surely people have braised chicken in wine since ancient times, it would be a surprise to find a specific origin moment.
An 1864 cookbook called Cookery for English Households offers a French recipe called poulet au vin blanc (chicken in white wine), which is a parallel to traditional coq-au-vin. But the recipe really grew famous thanks to Julia Child, who is almost single-handedly responsible for popularising French cooking in the United States.
