I feel so disconnected from my blog! Things have just been busy around here lately. My work commute makes me tired everyday, WH and I have been making an effort to exercise in some way every night and Reggie has decided that his litterbox is optional… I wish you could see my “that’s not okay” face.
But I’m back with big things! I was incredibly intimidated when Barefoot Blogger Bethany of this little piggy went to market chose Coq Au Vin. It just sounds difficult and time consuming. I didn’t even know how to cut a whole chicken into 8ths. Sooo I kind of cheated and bought boneless skinless chicken breasts. I also used regular old bacon and probably didn’t get the right kind of wine, but I still went for it.
It turned out pretty good! Because my chicken was boneless, I reduced the time in the oven by about half. And as usual, I cut the recipe in half for the two of us. You can find the original recipe here.
If you’ve never made Coq Au Vin, don’t be scared! It’s not as bad as you think, I promise!
Yay for cheap, airplane bottle brandy!
