Chicken in Red Wine

I recently purchased a new cookbook that helps benefit a local suburban team that is walking for the upcoming Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.  The team members submitted their favorite recipes and there were some really good ones in it!  I first decided to try a crock pot chicken recipe.  I often struggle with cooking chicken in it because it can dry out quickly.  My crock pot cooks a little fast so I shortened the cooking time an hour.  This was a simple tasty dish and it turned out great!

6 boneless chicken breasts
6 slices cooked, chopped bacon
1 (16 oz.) bag baby carrots
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried thyme
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 dried bay leaves
1 1/4 c. red wine
3/4 c. chicken broth
1 (16 oz.) package fresh sliced mushrooms
2 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. cold water


Add all ingredients, except for mushrooms, flour, and cold water to crock pot.  Cook on low for 7 hours.  Add mushrooms and remove bay leaves.  Mix flour and cold water in a side dish and stir in crock pot.  Cook an additional 1/2 hour.
