Are you looking for a new and exciting dinner? Something that you would not have thought about making? Something that tastes amazing and is easy to make? Then French Spaghetti is just for you!!
I love a good robust pasta dish and this meal really delivers! So full of flavor and so easy to make. French Spaghetti is a super easy version of the classic French dish Coq au Vin, which means chicken in wine. Wait do you read that right? Oh yes I did write the word wine! You can even drink a glass or two while you are cooking.
I would love to tell you that this is my recipe. It’s so good that I just might have been tempted to “steal it”. The truth is my friend Trish Rosenquist, whose blog is Mom on Time Out, made this delicious recipe. She also just wrote a fantastic cookbook 100 Ways to use Rotisserie Chicken in Everyday Meals. I am so honored to be given a copy to review. Read on to learn just how amazing this cookbook really is!
Trish is now the definitive expert on all things rotisserie chicken! Once you read this cookbook, you will be one also. I never knew there was so much to learn about something as simple as $4.99 chicken. Every one of the 100 recipes sound drool worthy delicious and I can’t wait to make more of them! From Rotisserie Chicken Casserole, the recipe that started her journey, to Parmesean Chicken Corn Chowder, all 100 recipes are amazing, with easy to follow directions and most of all tasty!
As you can tell by the cover of the cookbook the photography is beautiful. As you know we eat with our eyes first and this cookbook will make you hungry! Just wait till you learn what Liquid Gold is! It changed my life and my mashed potatoes.

I hope that these photos do her recipe justice and that you will want to make this for dinner tonight!
As you can see this was steaming hot when I snapped the photo and everyone was clamoring for dinner. It smelled so good that it brought everyone in the house up to the studio excited that dinner was coming to them really soon. Both the 2 legged and 4 legged people! The 4 legged ones are by my side all the time….
You can just see the great chicken and the robustness of the sauce. I am telling you that this is so full of flavor and surprisingly it was more filling than a traditional spaghetti. One generous bowl of this and you and your tummy will be smiling all night long.
Check out my take on the recipe below. What you thought I would just give away her amazing recipe? You will just have to pick up the cookbook to create the original!
*the alcohol content is cooked out of the wine and only the flavor stays behind making it kido safe*
