Enjoying The Best Recipes from France

We 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 restaurants every day… but we went back to Le Un Deux Trois multiple times it was SO good. 

Ever since that trip, I love making gluten free French recipes at home like this amazing coq au vin.

I made a list of my 125 favorite gluten free pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my gluten free recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meals for everyone at your table.

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 French Red Wine Chicken Stew Gluten Free?

  1. 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.
  2. In the pot, sauté 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, herbs 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.
  3. If sauce needs thickening, whisk the gluten free flour into the sauce and allow to cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. Discard the bay leaves, and serve over rice or pasta, or with a side of au gratin potatoes.

Fancy Gluten Free Dinner Recipes for Guests or Entertaining

This Dutch Oven Coq au Vin is the tastiest, coziest dinner meal. It’s perfect for a hearty meal for the family, and also great to make for company if you are having guests for dinner.

It makes a great holiday meal as well. The oven does most of the work, so you can enjoy hands-off time while you prep sides or a salad!
