Red Wine Crock Pot Chicken

Red Wine Crock Pot Chicken

So, what do you do with a bottle of red wine that’s gone south? In this case, you make a yummy dinner! I got this recipe – or rather, the bones of it – from Healthy Recipes for Moms, which I know doesn’t technically apply to me. It was a great recipe, as you can see for yourself, but I was missing most of the ingredients. So … I made a few substitutions. Okay, I basically redid the recipe. The writer of this blog doesn’t identify herself, but thank you, and my apologies for what I’m about to do to your recipe. 🙂


3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 generous teaspoons jarred minced garlic
1 large can of mushrooms (or you could use fresh)
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup cranberry juice
1 cup dry red wine
2 tablespoons maple syrup (the real kind, please)
2 cups cooked rice (to serve underneath)


Place garlic in the bottom of crock pot. Combine flour, salt, and pepper on a plate. Dredge the chicken through the flour, then arrange over the garlic. Add mushrooms, basil, and oregano.

In a separate bowl, mix cranberry juice, red wine, and maple syrup together. Pour over chicken. Cover, cook on high for 1 hour, then on low for 6 hours. (I am guessing you could also just cook on low for 8-10 hours).
