These brisk spring days can be really confusing for a cook. On the one hand, we're psyched for salads and iced coffee, but then there are days, like a few Wednesdays ago, when it's pouring rain and you're freezing. Enter my Coq au Vin (chicken stewed in wine).
On that chilly day, I happened to have enough ingredients to pass for a classic Coq au Vin — chicken thighs, dried porcini mushrooms, a red onion, pancetta, and red wine. What I didn't have was time.
