This classic French recipe is executed simply and easily here. Don't worry if you can't find veal stock — go ahead and use chicken stock instead. However, veal stock does add a complexity and body to the flavor of the sauce that can have guests searching for that "je ne sais quoi."

  • 25g/1oz butter
  • 150g/5½oz shallots, peeled but left whole
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 150g/5½oz streaky bacon, cut thickly
  • sprig of fresh thyme or a good pinch of dried
  • 350g/12½oz button mushrooms
  • 500ml/16½fl oz good red wine
  • 500ml/16½fl oz chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 free range chicken, cut into 8 serving pieces, on the bone but skin removed (or 6 chicken thighs)
  • small bunch flatleaf parsley, chopped
  • salt and crushed black pepper

Heat a thick-bottomed casserole dish on the stove, add almost all the butter (reserving a knob of the butter) and the shallots. Cook until just browned then stir in the garlic. Add the bacon and thyme and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the mushrooms, turn up the heat and add the red wine, chicken stock and vinegar. Add the chicken pieces, bring the sauce to the boil and then simmer gently for about 25 minutes or until the chicken is tender and cooked through. For a thicker sauce, remove the chicken once it is cooked and keep warm. Cook the sauce over a high heat for a few minutes until the volume of liquid has reduced. Return the chicken back to the pan.

Add the parsley, together with the reserved knob of butter. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve with a dressed green salad and olive oil mash or crusty bread.

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 bone-in chicken breasts (about 12 ounces each), skin removed, trimmed
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, quartered (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 large carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon crumbled dried rosemary
  • 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine, preferably Zinfandel
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Place flour in a shallow dish. Cut each chicken breast in half on the diagonal to get 4 portions about equal in weight. (Two will be smaller but thicker, the other two larger but thinner.) Sprinkle the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and dredge in the flour. Whisk water with 2 tablespoons of the leftover flour in a small bowl set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add the chicken. Cook, turning once or twice, until lightly browned on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan reduce heat to medium-low. Add mushrooms, carrots, onion and rosemary and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened and browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Add broth, wine, tomato paste and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Stir until the tomato paste is dissolved. Bring to a simmer.

Return the chicken and any accumulated juice to the pan. Cover, reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring once or twice, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165 degrees F, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a serving plate.

Increase the heat under the sauce to medium-high. Stir the water-flour mixture, add it to the pan and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute. Serve the chicken with the sauce, sprinkled with parsley.

How would you rate Coq Au Vin?

I've tried so many coq Au Vin recipes and this is the best one yet. Get some good bread and wine and it's unbelievable. 5 Stars!

Fancy, for me—a simple Trader Joe's sort of cook. But way fun and easy to follow. Mushrooms, onion, wine. how can you lose?

This is the best Coq au Vin recipe I've made. Definitely got me close, really close, to French find dining at home! Thanks a lot BA! This was a great afternoon project during quarantine!

This recipe is magic. Literally booked a flight to Paris after making it.

amazing recipe! it takes a good 4 to 5 hours to make, but it is worth it! it is to die for.

Fabulous, if not time-consuming, recipe! Why it has only 3.5/5 stars is beyond me? What's not to like? It's easy, the ingredients are simple, few, and inexpensive, and the result is delicious. I might use 8 ounces, instead of 12, of bacon next time to reduce the fat a little. But, the dish really is perfect as is. We served it over egg noodles.

Coq au Vin

In a very large, deep skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat, stirring frequently, until crisp, about 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate.

Pat the chicken dry and season generously with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet skin side down in a single layer and cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat in the skillet.

Add the garlic, onion and carrots to the pan. Cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until barely softened, about 2 minutes. Uncover and cook until nearly tender, 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook over high heat, scraping up any browned bits, until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add the stock, bouquet garni and bacon and bring to a simmer. Nestle the chicken in the broth, cover partially and simmer over moderately low heat until the chicken is white throughout, about 45 minutes.

In a large skillet, melt the butter in the olive oil over high heat. When the foam subsides, add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until browned and tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the chicken and simmer for 5 minutes. Discard the bouquet garni. Garnish the coq au vin with the parsley and serve.

  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme, plus more for garnish

  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 3 1/4 cups Homemade Chicken Stock, or canned low-sodium chicken broth, skimmed of fat

Make a bouquet garni: Using a small piece of cheesecloth, wrap 3 garlic cloves, peppercorns, thyme, bay leaf, and parsley stems tie in a bundle with kitchen twine. Set aside.

Cut chicken into strips about 2 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. In a large, deep skillet or a Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add onions and remaining 3 cloves garlic cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add mushrooms cook until golden, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a dish.

Add butter and remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Season chicken with salt and pepper cook in two batches until browned, about 1 minute per side. Return chicken to skillet. Add cognac and wine deglaze pan, stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom. Stir in chicken stock and tomato paste. Add bouquet garni.

In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water. Pour mixture into stock, and stir until incorporated. Cook 2 minutes. Return chicken and vegetables to pot, and cook over medium-low heat until warmed through. Chop parsley leaves, and stir into chicken mixture. Serve stew immediately, garnished with thyme.

What wine do you use in coq au vin?

Traditionally, coq au vin is made with a Burgundy wine, like a pinot noir. I've used lighter reds like Tempranillo and Gamay Noir successfully. I think the most important thing is that you like the wine you use. The wine adds a lot of flavor to the dish so make sure it's one you enjoy drinking!

White wine can also be used to make coq au vin blanc. Steer clear of sweet white wines. A Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc works well.

If you follow a paleo diet, you're probably concerned about all the additives in mass-produced wine. One company that curates a collection of clean crafted wines is Scout and Cellar. They deliver to most of continental US and are worth checking out.
