Coq au vin on a weeknight? Yes, please! Normally this decadent French dish is an all-day affair, but thanks to the ingenious invention of a slow cooker, the chicken deepens in flavor while you work or sleep or hey, just sit on the couch. The result is a hearty bowl of comfort, equally at home on date night or when you host friends. Egg noodles are prefect for sopping up the luxurious sauce, but if you want a whole-grain alternative, brown rice or pearl barley would taste great, too. All that’s left to do when dinnertime rolls around is set out the candles, crack open the wine, and enjoy this delicious dish.
