    I made this as part of a dinner party menu..starting with the chestnut soup, scallops with green tea cream, romaine with balsamic dressing. All from the Nov issue. DELICIOUS is all I can say about each one. I followed the recipes as printed and found them to be perfect. I served the coq au vin with creme fraiche(left over from the scallops)mashed potatoes. Worthy of a special dinner.

    I was SO excited to make this recipe. It looked so good in the photo, but I have to agree with DC on this one. The sauce was thin and soupy rather than the thick, sticky sauce I expected after looking iat the photo. The chicken was tender, but this took WAY too long to make (2 hours!) to be so far from what I expected. I won't make this dish again.

    I wanted to love the dish, but I think it was missing something...can't figure it out. Followed recipe exactly. The sauce was very soupy but the chicken was very tender. Took about 2 hrs to prepare start to finish. would try again but add a little more spices. Served over parpadelle pasta.

    Sensational. I used leg quarters. Falling-apart wonderful Sat or Sun night dinner. Will make this once a month forever.

    I made this for dinner one night, just for my family, and we all loved it (ages 20 months to 30-something). It tasted like coq au vin in a four-star restaurant and was quick and easy to prepare. I followed all directions but substituted chopped onions and I also left out tomato paste. The meat was tender and very flavorful. My husband said he would eat this dish every week!

    Wonderful dish! My family just loved it. I did add some flour after I sauted the onion mixture to make the sauce thick after one review said that hers turned out to thin. This will definitly go into our dinner rotation!

    Agree with dc and Jennie. Not worth the effort and waste of a good bottle of wine. Took far too much time for an "easy" recipe that I followed exactly.
