Nutritional values

Little fat, a lot of protein - the "Coq au vin" satiates without being heavy. A high content of niacin and vitamin B6 does the nervous system good, the phenols in red wine "clean" the veins and benefit the heart.

If you have good red wine and organic chicken breast, then irresistible taste and aroma are guaranteed. Alternatively, you can also use non-alcoholic red wine, to be on the safe side when children eat with you. Add a rustic baguette or rosemary potatoes - voilà, the feast is ready!
