Don’t let the name scare you! This chicken cooked in red wine is a classic French dish but we are bringing it to the crock-pot.  Serve this with a green salad and a little crusty French bread and you’ve got a great meal!

Instead of crumbling bacon, you can also dice the bacon before cooking but I find raw bacon difficult to cut.
