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

Wow, this sounds like a magical coq au vin recipe because it is is so easy. I may try it soon but without skin. Do you do yours with or without the skin. Out of lazyness I may also choose only legs and/or thighs. Thanks for sharing.
