This is a perfect dish for a casual cozy dinner. Like most classics, there's a reason it's risen to that status - because it's always appropriate and always delicious. Coq Au Vin just means chicken in wine and it's really so easy. You can make it in your slow cooker or cook it in the oven, whichever you like. However, I always like to make this - and most other stews - a day ahead if possible. The extra time gives the flavors a chance to meld and come together beautifully.
Pair this with a heartier Pinot noir and serve it over polenta, noodles or mashed potatoes.
