Coat chicken in flour and toss in slow cooker

Vin cotto, what is it?
Cooked wine is called Vin Cotto. It is a thick, black, delicious paste made in Italy's countryside. It is prepared by reducing non-fermented grape must to around 20% of its initial volume and caramelizing the sugars in it by slow heating and reduction over several hours.

Chicken in red wine reduction, or pollo al vin cotto, is the main dish here. This dish initially appeared on a morning TV program. I was captivated by the dish as I watched a renowned Italian-American chef prepare it on GMA with Dianne Sawyer. I went ahead and prepared it for supper as soon as I had the ingredients. The chicken in the rich, sweet vin cotto sauce was a hit with my husband, Daryl, and myself.
