Enjoying The Best Recipes from France

Brett and I went to France 5 years ago now (feels like yesterday) and the food was the best part. We stayed in Lyon for most of our time in France, and also traveled around Switzerland too. And let me tell you, we still dream about the little French bistros in Vieux Lyon. There was one in particular we loved, called Le Un Deux Trois which was hands down the best!  In our week in France we tried new restraunts every day… but we went back to Le Un Deux Trois multiple times it was SO good.  Ever since that trip, we love finding amazing French restaurants in our area in New England, and making French recipes at home like this amazing coq au vin.

What’s In This Simple Coq Au Vin Recipe?

A Whole Chicken Coq Au Vin Ready in 90 Minutes!?

Yes, this chicken will be on your table in no time. The first 30 minutes of cooking are a bit labor intensive… and the last hour is just letting the chicken summer in the red wine sauce.  It’s mostly hands-off cooking, which is fine by me!  You can prep any side dishes or a salad in that time. Speaking of French cooking, this great Salade Lyonnaise recipe would pair wonderfully with this chicken too.

How Do I Make This French Red Wine Chicken Stew Recipe?

In a dutch oven, heat the olive oil. Place the chicken skin-side down and cook on each side until brown (about 5 minutes per side). Remove chicken from pot, and.place on a plate to set aside.
In the pot, saute the onion, carrots, and potatoes for 7 or 8 minutes over medium low heat. Onions should be softened and starting to brown. Add salt, pepper, chicken stock, bay leaves, herbes de provence, and red wine. Bring to a boil, and place chicken back into the pot. Make sure the chicken is fully covered by wine and chicken stock. Simmer with 30 minutes with the lid on, then remove lid and simmer for an additional 30 minutes.
If sauce needs thickening, whisk the flour into the sauce and allow to cook for an additional 10 minutes. Discard the bay leaves, and serve over rice or pasta, or with a side of au gratin potatoes.
