    An easy make-ahead dish, good enough for a dinner party. Tender chicken thighs baked with sherry, garlic and tomato sauce. Nice served with buttered rice and French green beans.

    When I was studying in France, I had this dish and it has been my favourite ever since. It is chicken breast cooked in butter, creme fraiche and mushrooms over pasta. No one can make it like my friend, but this is very close.

    We discovered this incredible chicken Provençal recipe on a recent trip to the south of France. This is a fantastic slow cooker recipe, so sit back and let the slow cooker work its magic.

    Chicken breasts are stewed in a white wine and a simple but delicious stock. In French cooking, mirepoix is the traditional base of diced carrots, onion and celery sautéed in butter that is used to flavour a great many stews, soups and sauces.

    The French classic recipe calls for an old rooster but trust me, chicken legs or thighs with the bone in and the skin left on will work just as well. Don't be tempted to use chicken breasts as the braised thighs will give you much more flavour.

    I love my slow cooker so decided to make one of my favourite dishes in it, and turns out coq au vin is perfect for the slow cooker! The chicken is gorgeously tender.

    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.
