“A homemade country style chicken and sausage dish. This came about from me watching some make "cocovan" and I am not much for a lot of wine in my food and I HATE COOKED CARROTS! I cannot stress that strongly enough. But I loved the ideas behind cooking Cog Au Vin, so I decided to make a country version. My whole family loved this. My husband asked for seconds telling me how delicious it was. This is quickly becoming a signature dish in our home.”
