Time on High: 45 mins Time on Low: 6 hrs It was love at first bite when I first prepared Coq au Vin! I'm from Virginia so I had to find a way to incorporate ham and whiskey. I used smokey ham stock instead of beef stock and I used whiskey as well as dry red wine. I gotta to tell ya, it was a marriage made in heaven! I hope that you will enjoy my twist on Coq au Vin. I do believe that the French would approve.
