Easy Coq au vin
I recently noticed that there was a great sale on chicken at the grocery store. I know that the meat at this store is always good and so I planned on what to do. How would I take chicken like this and make it delicious for the family???
It was easy to do and coq au vin was a tasty treat for supper that night. Great thing was the slow cooker would be used to make it all come true. Just follow the recipe I shared here
