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!
