      Made this for my family to test it for a shore crowd. It is very tasty and not too difficult. My husband said "oh, this is Coq au Vin". It really is. Chicken serves a lot cut like this - I didn't pound it out - cut horizontally and then cut in med size strips. Served with yellow rice and cantaloupe. May add a green salad for the shore but the baby spinach on the bottom is good. It will be a shore meal for a crowd.

      family of 6 - four fussy teenagers - all enjoyed the flavour - particularly the sun dried tomatoes. Made enough to freeze for another night.
