Well I'm Using Dark Chicken Meat Legs, Thighs

I think the point with the rooster is it has more flavor due to the connective tissue, and A rooster uses his muscles more than a Hen, thus giving the roster meat more flavor.

This Was On Wiki:

Various legends trace coq au vin to ancient Gaul and Julius Caesar, but the recipe was not documented until the early 20th century; it is generally accepted that it existed as a rustic dish long before that. A somewhat similar recipe, poulet au vin blanc, appeared in an 1864 cookbook.

However there have been other sources dating Coq au vin to 1919

This is what I got ready right now, I guess this will be my crock pot version.



I will turn on the crock pot right before I take sue to physical therapy, then when we get home I Hope it will be done.

To be honest I was skeptical If I was going to like Coq au vin, After sue tasted it (she is my Ginny pig\Kitchen Lab rat) and she liked it, I then tasted it, and it really tasted good.

I also made some German spaetzle noodles to go with it.



Here is a few more pictures.

Tomorrow is my birthday, sue just told me.

I don't remember how old I am most of the time (or care anymore)

I think I am going to cook "poulet au vin blanc" tomorrow.
