Coq au vin with herbs

    2 hours

    I created this Coq au vin recipe because I have a small garden with lots of herbs, and I love to use them fresh. I cook this dish in the oven because it is quick and healthy. It is delicious with pasta.

    mmmm really authentic, lovely dish. I didn't change a thing except for the chervil - didn't have it, so just didn't add it. I'll be making this again  -  15 Nov 2012
