Coq Au Vin originally translates to ‘rooster cooked in wine’. It was a dish that was cooked low and slow. Rooster meat is not quite as tender as the chicken you buy today and if you buy and eat ‘desi murgi’ or country chicken, you will find it is also a much tougher meat. So this was rooster slow cooked in red wine that has evolved into a chicken dish. It’s most likely due to us not eating much rooster these days. If you saw my Keto Beef Bourguignon recipe, this is pretty similar to that. Anyway time to cook.
The fat and the carbs and the protein
The macros for this recipe will vary from cook to cook because of the bacon. The bacon I am using is a local brand and they are smoked bacon cubes which contain a HUGE amount of fat. It’s almost 1800 calories for the 200 grams of bacon. Depending on what bacon you use the macros for your dish might vary. Also if you decide to use chicken without skin or chicken breast then the macros will vary as well. For the wine I used a generic red wine which is about 3 carbs in total. If you skip the wine, use less mushrooms or ditch the onions then the carbs will be even lower.
