My Mom's Coq Au Vin

Author Notes

Lots of coq au vin recipes are time intensive with tons of steps. Not this one! My mom used to make this pretty often, and now I do too. It's super easy, and I tend to also throw in extra veggies (mushrooms, onions, even carrots) to make it into a 1-pot dinner. —Carolyn Carnes
