  • Roast red wine chicken (Poulet rôti au vin rouge)

    • DKennedy on October 26, 2014

      Making this for dinner tonight. The timing and/or temperature is off for this recipe. I have had it in for 30 minutes at 400 degrees, covered, and when I took it out it was clear that 15 more minutes uncovered will not be enough to cook it through or brown it. I have kicked it up to 450 for the last 15 minutes but I am sure it will need a lot more time.

      Dkennedy: I note that in the online version of the recipe, at least, the heading shows a cooking time of 1 hour, but the instructions seem to call for only a total of 45 minutes in the oven. Looks like something is wrong, I agree. The size of the chicken might be a factor too -- 3 lbs is pretty small these days.

      This recipe was the disaster of disasters and can only agree with DKennedy's comments. I decided when it came out dramatically undercooked to do the only humane thing and consign the body to the bin. I wouldn't give it even one star and I will be very careful before using any more of her recipes.
