Cooking Time: 60 Minutes

 

 

Recipe:

  • Cut chicken into approximately 10 pieces (wing, each leg into two, each breast into 2)

  • Put the chicken pieces into a pot together with the wine

  • Simmer for 30 minutes

  • Add crème fraîche to the pot

  • Simmer for another 30 minutes or until chicken pieces are very tender

  • Serve

Side dish: Rice

 

Notes:

 

This is a tasty but simple Coq au Vin recipe.

 

One should use an ordinary bottle of wine for this recipe. A bad bottle might ruin the dish, whereas investing in a fine bottle would be a shame as the subtle tones of an expensive bottle would be lost during cooking. Avoid strong tasting wines (e.g. a wine which has been aged for a long time in a barrel and thus has an "oaky" taste) as this would conflict with the taste of the cream and chicken. A simple Chardonnay would be most suitable.
