    Think of a French country-style meal and chances are your mind will conjure up the image of chicken simmering in robust red wine. This up-dated version of a classic bistro dish contains shallots, mushrooms and carrots, so the only accompaniment needed is potatoes – or some warmed seeded bread.

    In a traditional coq au vin, the liver and blood of the rooster would be incorporated into the sauce at the end of cooking to make it richer and more flavourful. Here, I replace blood and liver with tomato passata for a beautiful, tasty sauce, that is easy to make! I also use chicken thighs instead of a rooster, it is easier to find and more tender.

    A hearty and delicious dish, which is perfect for the cold winter months. Chicken thighs are braised in a white wine sauce with shallots, mushrooms and bacon. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.

    Chicken, herbs and vegetables cooked in a Burgundy wine sauce. This is my cheat's version of the French classic. The trick is to brown the chicken well before adding the vegetables or liquid.

    This is my version of a classic French recipe that I have adapted for quick and easy preparation. You may wish to adjust the quantity of tarragon to taste.
