Barbecued Chicken Thighs Au Vin

Top Review by Bergy

Dancer you continue to amaze me. This recipe is so easy to make and so good I did not know what"blackuce heat" meant but just put it back on the stove and simmered it for 5 minutes. I used skinless boneless breast but followed your recipe (cooking time was shorter).Great blend of flavors that complimented each other perfectly. Thanks Dancer for another great recipe
