Coq au vin is a classic French dish consisting of chicken cooked in red wine, along with bacon, mushrooms, onions, and other herbs and seasonings. The dish is traditionally served with mashed potatoes, crusty bread, or rice to soak up the flavorful sauce.

To eat coq au vin, start by spooning some of the sauce onto your plate. Then, take a piece of chicken and dip it into the sauce before taking a bite. Make sure to get a bit of the bacon, mushrooms, and onions with each bite to fully experience the dish’s complex flavors. Repeat until you’ve finished the chicken and then use the bread or potatoes to soak up any remaining sauce on your plate. Enjoy!
