Chef John's Coq Au Vin
In this video, you’ll see how to make a classic, comforting French chicken dish starring mushrooms, bacon, onions, and red wine. Chef John is using chicken thighs here. “Like all braised dishes, tougher cuts with lots of connective tissue work best, and on a chicken that would be the thigh/leg section.” If you’re fond of fonds, this is the recipe for you. It features the rare triple fond, which Chef John deglazes deliciously with red wine. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Coq Au Vin. This is incredible comfort food, France-style!
