    Chocolatl's Note:

    This recipe uses sherry instead of the usual red wine. From the Lobel Brothers. More herbs can be added if you like, but it's good this way, or even with no herbs at all. I like to add a little more garlic and thyme than the recipe calls for.

      Wonderful! A real change of pace from the normal coq-au-vin and very much lighter too. I made this as posted with the exception of the carrots, I did not add them. I served this for a wonderful meal with mashed potatoes and garlic green beans, and the sauce was divine. Thanks so much for being brave enough to post a lighter alternative to the usual heavy red wine-laden dish, this made a refreshing change! FT/Karen :-)

      I took my family to 'france' tonight for zaar world tour. All plates were licked clean. Many compliments were received. Thank you very much for sharing.

      Very easy, very tasty... but I'm sad mine didn't look like French Tart's. That's what I wanted to eat! Ha ha! Mine wasn't red... but it was still delicious.
