Santoku Chef Knife, FRENCH PANTRY Bouquet Garni Herb Blend 


  1. Season the Chicken pieces with Salt and Pepper
  2. Place the Flour in a shallow dish and dredge each piece of Chicken, shaking off any excess. You want to get a good dredging-  the flour that ends up on your Chicken will be what thickens up your sauce throughout the cooking process
  3. In a large dutch oven, heat the Butter under medium-high heat and add the Chicken in batches, cooking until both sides are browned nicely, then set aside on a plate
  4. Add Bacon pieces to dutch oven and cook until fat is rendered, and Bacon is crispy. Drain all but 2 tablespoons of fat form the pot, add the Brandy and ignite, cooking until the flame dies out
  5. Return Chicken to pot and add the Herb Blend, Garlic, Wine and Chicken Stock and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and let simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until Chicken is tender and sauce is thickened
  6. About 20 minutes before ready to serve, add in the Pearl Onions and Mushrooms, then season with Salt and Pepper

I’ve been making an old family Coq au Vin recipe the past couple of years and thought I would change it up. My husband and I both really enjoyed it. The Bouquet Garni really added a nice flavor to it.
