Quick Coq au Vin

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley, divided

Place in oven to keep warm.

    I have been a customer of your Bradenton,Fl store for over 35 years, and miss you! (you closed our local store last year). One of my annual purchases was to buy a ‘yearly’ quantity of LEJON SWEET VERMOUTH. I would usually buy 8 or 9 cases for the year (we shared the purchase with a few of our neighbors). Lejon was usually ‘on sale’ at around $3- something a bottle when purchased in case quantities. Can you please email me your current prices, and let me know how I can pre-order a quantity for pick-up at your store?
