Coq au vin is a French dish comprised of chicken thighs braised in red wine. This is classic French comfort food as the slowly cooked chicken thighs melt in your mouth and contrast perfectly with the crispy chicken skin. We paired the chicken with farro as its chewiness lends another texture to the meal. This recipe calls for a cup of red wine which leaves plenty left in the bottle for a glass or two with dinner. Enjoy!
Note: If you would like to schedule this meal, but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the mushrooms, onion, carrots, and garlic cloves until soft, about 8 minutes, instead of broiling.

Toss the mushrooms, onion, carrots, and garlic cloves with 2 tbsp olive oil. Divide between two Suvie pans. Broil for 10 minutes or until the mushrooms release their liquid. Do not fill the reservoir before broiling.
During the broil, pat the chicken thighs dry and season liberally with salt and pepper.
When the broil is complete, sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mix and stir to incorporate. Divide the red wine and dried thyme between the two pans and mix. Nestle the chicken thighs into the pans. Load the pans into upper zone of Suvie.
