Coq Au Vin

Coq Au Vin

If Coq Au Vin sounds a little French to you….that’s probably because it is. French for “yummy chicken and vegetables simmered together in a delicious wine-sauce that makes your house smell like heaven.”

That’s not a direct translation, but I’d say it’s pretty close based on my experience. And while the French likely stayed at home utilitzing a traditional slow-cook, method, I’m willing to accomadate a bit and use my slow cooker.

I put this together for some awesome friends who go to my church after they had their first baby & it turned out pretty decent!

And thus I give you: Coq Au Vin
