Reese Witherspoon's Crockpot Coq au Vin
*Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-low heat until crisp. With a slotted spoon, transfer it to a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker. Pour off all but a light coating of fat from the skillet.
*Add the chicken and brown over medium-high heat; transfer to the cooker.
*Pour the wine into the skillet and scrape up any browned bits; add the skillet contents to the cooker, along with the mushrooms, onions, garlic, rosemary and salt.
*Cover and cook on low heat for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours.
*Transfer the chicken, bacon and vegetables to a platter; keep warm. Pour the sauce into a small saucepan. Combine the water and cornstarch; stir it into the sauce.
*Heat to boiling stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens about 5 minutes. Pour over the chicken.
