Poulet mijoté au vin rouge : Une ode à la simplicité

Chicken, with its tender, juicy flesh, is one of the most versatile dishes in the kitchen. In this recipe, we combine it with our signature red wine to create a rustic, yet refined dish that evokes memories of fall, crackling fireplaces and cozy family meals.

  • Bouquet garni (thyme, bay leaf, parsley)
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
