Coq au Vin

Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes plus marinating
     Chicken in red wine.  Traditionally this would use a rooster (rather than a hen) and cook for several hours (as the coq would tend to be a tough old bird - but full of flavor).  Without the skin the flavors get deeper into the meat and we eliminate a lot of the fat. Use a full-bodied Burgundy or Cote de Rhone (or equivalent) for this.  Not expensive, but drinkable. Do not use 'cooking wine'.  The secret to this dish is the cocoa - it gives an amazing richness and depth of flavor.
