Hearty Chicken With Wine Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Adopted Parisian

This is a more approachable version of traditional Coq au Vin. You must try this new twist on the lovely french classic. I recommend serving with salad and fresh bread.

Absolutely delicious! Made exactly as written for a dinner party and everyone raved. Crusty French bread is a must to soak up the "to-die-for" sauce. Thanks Adopted Parisian for a definite keeper.
