Haven't cooked yet, but I'll cook the potatoes in the pot with everything else.

I've made this several times and it is so easy and tasty! To make it a little easier for busy weeknight family meals, I use baby-cut carrots, pre-sliced mushrooms and boneless skinless thighs. I like it with the mashed potatoes, but sometimes serve it with egg noodles, and that's good too.

It was okay.... smelled good but needed something more. I used two packets of the dry soup as one person mentioned above and more wine. Served it with a whole wheat wide noodle. I looked at this recipe as well as So Easy Coq au vin on bhg as well but chose this one due to more favorable ratings. If I choose to make this again I will definitely add the Herb de Provence (mentioned in the other recipe) to add what I think this recipe was missing. All in all a decent meal but not a show stopper for us.

I've made this a couple times and it is wonderful!    This aroma while it's cooking makes the whole house smell fabulous.    The taste is just delicious!    Served it over garlic mashed potatoes!    YUM!

This was delicious and a big hit with my French hubby! I prefer the slower method (cooked on low for as long as you can) and to use 2 packets of the beefy onion soup mix. I also threw in about 8 small/baby yellow potatoes and used 3/4 cup of wine. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and pre-sliced mushrooms. Super yummy and even better the second day!
