Coq Au Vin

Posted in /Cooking/Entrees/Poultry on Sunday, February 10, 2019

This is a classic French chicken dish of chicken braised so well it pulls apart beautifully.

I enjoyed how there was only a small amount of prep for this recipe than then you pop it in the oven and leave it for two hours. Matt helped with the prep so it went even faster, this was great as I was getting some school work done...on a Sunday! He is a wonderful hubby and also made the mashed potatoes, he really is the king of mashed potatoes! While eating the meal he told me that this was a top 10 recipe and we need to make it again soon!

Make sure you follow Julia Child's advice and sample your wine. If you're cooking with wine, it should be wine you would also drink. If the wine isn't good enough to drink it isn't good enough to cook with. Cooking will not improve the wine's flavour or the meal's!

This is one of the recipes I use with my students during the milk and egg module. They always tell me that they don't like Swiss cheese, I take that as a challenge to prove them wrong! Students all want to try this once it comes out of the oven because it rises so beautifully.
