Coq au Vin Chicken in Red Wine

"Coq au Vin which is Chicken in Red Wine is a delectable entree that is best made ahead of time over a period of a few days. Trust me when I say that it tastes so much better when made this way. Coq au Vin is a traditional French dish that will wow your guests. You can serve this over buttered noodles or even mashed potatoes which will sop up all that delicious sauce. This is one meal that is best for entertaining. Bon appetit!"

We will begin making this on Monday for a celebration dinner we are hosting on Wednesday night. We will be using chicken thighs instead of breasts and, as novice cooks, we are a little nervous but the instructions are so clear and detailed and I can not wait to finally taste it.

Oh my word, do not ask me why but I have not had Coq au Vin in YEARS! A long time ago I was told never to use cheap wine in Coq au Vin so we used our best bottle of Pinotage for this dish and, boy oh boy, it was FABULOUS!! Do not be deterred by the list of ingredients because it is so worth the effort. And do not cut corners either. This is an exceptionally good meal that, just like us, you will want to have again and again.

This is the correct picture - the chicken does sort of look like slow cooked beef. The red wine braising liquid essentially "stains" the meat to give it that dark appearance. This recipe is my favorite thing to make on those bone - chilling winter nights when it is just too nasty to go out! So delicious and comforting!

This Coq au Vin looks like a lovely recipe. I think it is a good idea if you are having guests round. It seems a bit too time consuming for a general meal just for the family but for a special occasion you could be 'posh' and make something 'Frenchy'. What I like about this is that everything is done prepared and cooked beforehand so if you are having guests then on the day there is not much left to do and you have a gourmet meal to serve up. It looks and sounds delicious. I', definitely keeping this one.

Why does that look like beef? Wrong pic maybe

I never knew that Coq au Vin meant chicken in red wine. I always thought it sounded like a complicated dish by the name. But, after reading the instructions, it seems simple. Just takes a little time. I am not up on my wine. Would cooking wine work or not?
