Chicken stew braised in red wine with carrots and onions.
Have you ever tried Coq au Vin? If you haven’t, prepare to become a fan of this delicious dish. Originally French, the recipe is believed to have been first documented early in the 20th century. Coq au Vin was likely perfected in France some time after King Henry IV proclaimed that no peasant should be too poor to be able to “have a rooster in his pot” every week. Much like our cottage pie, this is peasant food at its finest.
A tasty combination of chicken soaking in wine, Coq au Vin is guaranteed to be a favorite in your home for years to come. The best part is, you don’t have to whip it up from scratch.
Coq au Vin Ingredients
Although Coq au Vin is uniquely considered to be a French staple and it has a French name, this well-known chicken stew has become popular worldwide.
