The Technique 

Coq Au Vin

Reliable stove top meals need not be complex & making use of large packages of poultry guarantees a smart budget choice. One family pack of bone in, skin on chicken thighs will yield two nights of delicious, satisfying meals & I have the answer on what you may do with them. Coq Au Vin is a rustic, braised chicken dish that traditionally uses a whole cut up bird that is made with lardons, mushrooms & onions then simmered with red wine. In order to be certain the chicken registers the proper temperature, it is often times started on the stove top for browning then finished in the oven covered. Be certain to save the items remaining from your market purchases, as I’ll show you an additional French classic to prepare the following evening. Learn how to make a modern version of this traditional dish.

This stove top version comes together quickly. Lardons are traditionally used when preparing this classic dish. A few chopped strips of bacon may be rendered & used, if desired.

2 1/2 lbs bone-in, skin on chicken thighs
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil or clean bacon drippings
1 medium onion, cut in half & sliced
4-oz button mushrooms, quartered
2 Tbsp all purpose flour
1/2 cup red wine
2 cups chicken broth
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 bay leaf

Sprinkle the chicken with the salt & pepper. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over Medium-High heat. Brown the chicken 5 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken from the pan. Place the pan & the drippings back over the heat & add the onions & the mushrooms then sprinkle with a smattering of salt & pepper. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle the flour over all of the vegetables. Stir them around a bit to coat. Stir in the wine. Add the chicken broth, the tomato paste, the rosemary & the parsley. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to Medium-Low. Add the chicken back to the pan along with the bay leaf. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the chicken registers 165 degrees. Divide the chicken & vegetables between four serving bowls.

How To Make Coq Au Vin

Mashed potatoes or crusty French rolls make a lovely accompaniment to Simple Coq Au Vin. Do not get caught up on the type of red wine to use as the dish is very forgiving. As a rule of thumb, if you are drinking it, it’s fine to cook with.
