    This was a great variation of coq au vin. I really liked it better because the flavors were mellow than the traditional version. It is simple and quick to put together. I used thick breasts and turkey bacon with great end results. I served it with egg noodles. The rosemary is a great addition and is perfect in this winter stew. I would definitley serve this to family and friends.

    Used butterflied chicken breasts, fresh pearl onions, and an italian seasoning blend in place of rosemary. Also did bacon and chicken night before and let sit in the fridge. This turned out very well. Everything tasted great together. Served with green beans. Would not change a thing from my changes and will make again

    Very good and easy, but I made a few changes. Cut bacon down to 4 strips (about 5 oz. - still plenty of bacon flavor) and removed most of drippings before sauteing chicken. I used boneless breasts, which were a little drier, but still pretty good with the sauce. Added a little more wine and only 2 springs of rosemary (chopped). Also, I didn't have pearl onions, so I used regular and diced them on the big side. Cooked on low for 5 hr and 15 min., then turned off. Family loved it, even my picky 5 yr. old. Served with roasted acorn squash and broccoli, apple crisp for dessert - yum!

    Excellent - delish! I don't like to use my crock pot as it cooks too high, so I did this on the stove in a dutch oven, 2 hours on low - amazing! Can't wait to make it again!

    I was really hoping that this was going to be a spectacular dish. However, the flavor was just not there. The rosemary pretty much over did the dish. The bacon really didn't add anything to the dish. And the chicken lacked flavor. I wouldn't make this dish again! :o(

    Was hoping for a great dish with the ingredients! We didn't save any of the left overs. If I ever attempted this again, I would change several things. I think the best part was when I used fresh onions. That was about it!
