Coq au Vin – A Classic Chicken Recipe

Coq au Vin is a classic chicken dish. Actually it was a way to cook old roosters way back when. The French name translates to rooster in wine. These days most of us only have access to regular chickens at the store but this still makes a great dish. It is time consuming but has such a wonderful flavor.

Chicken Piccata – Recipe

Yummy! I love classic dishes and Chicken Piccata (or Veal Piccata) is one of them.
