Recipe to try: Coq au Vin

Well last night my mother and I tried out a recipe called Coq au Vin that I found on a website called Amateur Gourmet  a few days ago. We started around 6:15pm and were not done until 8:45pm. Overall it tasted wonderful. We did substitute a few things out in the recipe. For example, the recipe called for a fruity red wine, the author of the website used a Pinot Noir, my mother decided to use a Marsol. also my mother thought for some strange reason that beef broth was needed, so along with the chicken broth she added 2 teaspoons of Worchester sauce. She realized later that wasn't the case. lol Overall the only thing she regretted was letting some of the juice dry out. Yet there was still plenty in the pot. We were thinkin instead of using noodles maybe use some Uncle Ben's dirty rice.

We used a roaster style chicken and all the parts were delicious, even the breast which did not dry out.

Overall this is not a dish I would make out of the blue. I would make this for a special occasion.
