Chicken Basquaise

The Basque chicken is a culinary specialty of traditional cuisine emblematic of the Basque cuisine from the Pyrenees Atlantique Department in Aquitaine. The recipe celebrates the colors of the Basque flag (red, green, and white). Like many casseroles made from tomatoes and peppers, red wine is the most appropriate to have with this dish, from the local basque Irouleguy vineyard to a solid structure red wine like Chinon or the greedy roundness of a Côtes-du-Rhône-villages.
