What ingredients do you throw into your coq au vin?


Novice Foodie
I’m gearing up to try making coq au vin and would love some input on the ingredients. What do you usually include in your recipe? Are there any special additions or secret ingredients that make it extra special? Really excited to see how I can make this dish stand out! 🧅🍄
Classic coq au vin! Chicken, bacon, mushrooms, simmered in red wine and herbs 🌿 Fresh thyme is key, and maybe a splash of brandy for depth 🍷
For a classic coq au vin, you'll need chicken pieces (often a whole chicken cut into parts), bacon or pancetta, onions, carrots, mushrooms, garlic, red wine, chicken broth, tomato paste, thyme, bay leaves, and sometimes a splash of brandy. It's a rich and flavorful dish that's perfect for special occasions!
