Slow Cooker Coq Au Vin

gourmia multi cooker and sous vide 2

Weekends are super crazy in our household.  Between soccer, baseball and flag football, we have little time to do much else!  After the games we like to invite friends and family over for dinner but the hectic schedule doesn’t necessarily lend itself to entertaining.  We needed to find a way to prepare meals while we were out.  I knew a personal chef was out of the question, so when I heard about Gourmia’s Multi Cooker and Sous Vide, a glimmer of hope appeared!

Gourmia Multi Cooker and Sous Vide

You can bake, saute, roast, sous vide, make yogurt, slow cook, keep warm, cook rice, make a stew or steam in this ONE pot.  We are huge braising fans so our first recipe in the Gourmia Multi Cooker and Sous Vide was Coq au Vin.  YUM!


Coq au vin 1

  • 2  slices of 1/4″ thick pancetta, diced
  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 1 medium Spanish onion, chopped
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms, quartered
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups red wine (preferably French or pinot noir)
  • 1 cup chicken broth


  1. Set your Gourmia Multi Cooker and Sous Vide to saute and the timer to 30 minutes.  Let the pot warm up (about 3 minutes).  Add the olive oil and pancetta.  Cook for 6-8 minutes, until the fat is rendered.Coq au vin pancetta
  2. Remove the pancetta from the pot with a slotted spoon, leaving the fat.  Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken quarters and add to the pot.  Cook for 5-6 minutes per side. Coq au vin chicken

  6. Add chicken back to the pot.
  7. Add wine, chicken broth, and bay leaf.  Bring to a boil.
  8. Change the setting to “slow cook”.  Change the timer to 4 hours and press “Start”.

Once done, plate the coq au vin with mashed potatoes and your choice of vegetable.

The chicken was SO soft, it practically fell off the bone.  I am completely sold – weekends are going to be made for my Gourmia Multi Cooker and Sous Vide!  I am super excited to figure out what dish I am going to make next weekend!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! Wait till we make something with the sous vide functionality!

  1. Yum! I am so going to make this for dinner soon. I always love when I can use the slow cooker for meals. It makes the house smell amazing.

  2. Now I wouldn’t have thought about doing Coq au Vin in a slow cooker but what a great idea, I may just have to do this soon myself.

  3. Sounds like an awesome dish to serve the family! Thanks for the step-by-step. It’s really not easy when you have so much to do and you still have to cook dinner. I think this is the best solution for it!

    I want a slow cooker so bad. I keep on saving the recipe for the day I will buy one. I will try this in a normal pot and see how it turns out cause it sounds so delish.

    1. Cristina, get a slow cooker! They aren’t super expensive and you can make SO many different meals in it! This recipe does come out really great in a dutch oven also.

  5. Dee Jackson

    This dish looks awesome. I have a slow cooker at home and have yet to perfect using it.

  6. As a working mom, I love anything that I can throw in a slow cooker! I am always looking for new things to try and this sounds great!

  7. Now I wish that my slow cooker would sote as well. I usually do this in the pan, separately, and then combine the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker.

    1. Joanna, you can totally saute in a separate pan! It’s an extra thing to clean but the recipe will come out the same.

  8. I love coq au vin! My dad does an amazing one! Too bad I am no longer at home! And that I don’t have a slow cooker! Because I’d be making it otherwise! xx corinne

    1. Corinne, I’d love to hear how your dad makes his coq au vin! It is such an awesome “comfort food” dish, right?

  9. Great article.I have been Crock Pot cooking this entire week. There is something about slow cooked meals. Now I have to decide which one of yours I will add to my mix for next week.

  10. Mark Olowokere

    Am not really sure i will get it the way you cooked it. The sight of it alone is perfect. I think it’s better i organize the ingredients with my girlfriend and have her follow your directions to cook it.

  11. My crock pot is seriously my best friend some days. I love to know that a meal will be ready for me at the end of the day. This looks like it would be so delicious!

  12. Ally Jones

    This dish sounds and looks delicious! I am going to try it out this week!

  13. I love my slow cooker but i really think it is time for a new one. I have to read more about the Gourmia Multi Cooker, looks really nice.

    1. Cynthia, it’s great. I love that the insert is very lightweight too…much easier to clean too!

  14. ME TOOO! I love love my slow cooker! Especially for indian recipes, I’m always relyign on my speedy slow cooker 🙂
