Coq au Vin

Coq au Vin (French Chicken in Wine Recipe)

Coq au Vin is a classic French dish. Chicken with mushrooms in wine sauce will be a delight for you. This dish may seem plain in appearance, but its taste will win your heart once and for all.

Fry the chicken until golden brown. We torment it together with onions and garlic. Add wine, chicken broth and crispy bacon pieces. All this will make our sauce spicy and expressive. To make the dish even more delicious, take out the chicken and add the mushrooms. They will absorb all the flavors and juices and will become an indispensable part of the dish. As soon as the sauce with mushrooms thickens, we make it more creamy and return the chicken to the pan so that it becomes part of the dish. Serve with parsley leaves and leek rings.
