My French cousins visited last summer and made this amazing dish, Coq Au Vin. It's chicken cooked in red wine. Don't let the name scare you off, it's actually a really easy dish to prepare. I found a couple recipes on Allrecipes.com and ended up going with the one that I was easily able to alter and make my own (and also with ingredients that were easy to find). For instance, I didn't use cheese and subbed the cornstarch with flour, didn't add in any tomatoes, and added in mushrooms and baby carrots.
Gotta say, I was pretty impressed with myself but I'll need to tip the bottle of wine a little more next time. The heavy cream came on a little too strong so it'll help with add more flavor and just more sauce overall.
Peter gave the thumbs up so we'll give this another try in a couple of weeks!
