Always looks for quality Canadian raised and farmed Chicken! It's November and am all about this #CozyChicken and @ChickenDotCA, my coop mates and I are sharing -all-in-chicken chicken meals to amp up the comfort, amp up the ease, and show you come flavourful all in one chicken meals.


THE PREP (15 Minutes)

Coq Au Vin made with Prosecco is simple to prepare. First, preheat your pellet grill to 350 degrees. Next prepare the chicken for your grilled coq au vin recipe. Evenly coat all sides of the chicken with your favourite poultry rub. I used, "Black Truffle" by Louisiana Grills. Put your chicken directly on the grill to get a smoke bath while you get the other ingredients ready.


For this grilled coq au vin recipe, we are using my favourite bubbly - prosecco. Next prepare all the ingredients to saute in your dutch oven. Slice your bacon, cut all your veggies, and measure out everything else. I like to have all my ingredients ready on hand when doing cast iron cooks on the pellet grill.

THE COOK (1 Hour)

First Add your bacon and saute for 5 minutes. Next add your shallots, mushrooms, and potatoes. Saute until your mushrooms are slightly wilted. Next add your garlic, salt, pepper and parsley. Saute for a few minutes, ensuring not to burn the garlic. The final stage of this grilled Coq Au Vin recipe is adding in your prosecco and parmesan cheese. Stir thoroughly and then sit your grilled chicken into the sauce. Cover your dutch oven and braise/reduce for an hour or until your chicken is 175 degrees or over (fall off the bone).


You will have a lovely braised reduced sauce so spread over some delicious pasta or rice as a lovely side dish. This is such a savoury dish your whole family will enjoy it.
