Sounds Gourmet But It’s Oh-So-Easy

Recipe coq au vin

This past winter Bruce and I took a cooking class at Taste Buds Kitchen in East Greenwich, RI (link provided below). It was a Christmas gift to Bruce. Because he’d lived in France for several years, I wanted to learn something oh-so-French that we could cook together. So when Taste Buds offered an evening to learn Coq Au Vin (chicken in red wine) I signed us right up. Bruce was thrilled at the gift and the prospect of the class. Having had this dish several times myself, I assumed it would be a big lift cooking-wise. But that evening I was happy to discover that a dish, that is so wonderful, both in the way it sounds and the way it tastes, could be oh-so-easy to make. What follows is my take on this delicious recipe for coq au vin. You can complete it in less than an hour – start to finish. It’s company worthy and makes your home smell oh-so-good whilst it cooks.

Delicious Recipe for Coq Au Vin – The Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 4 Chicken Thighs (skin on, boneless, if available, with bones if not)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 cloves Garlic (chopped)
  • 8 oz. Shiitake Mushrooms (cleaned, stems removed, halved or quartered)
  • 3 Carrots (sliced)
  • 1 Medium Onion (diced)
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 Cup Dry Red Wine
  • 3 Thyme Sprigs
  • 1 Cup Chicken Stock

And Now – The Steps

  1. Place olive oil in dutch oven and heat
  2. Place chicken in pan, season with salt and pepper and brown for 3-5 minutes
  3. Take chicken out of pan and place on a paper towel
  4. Place garlic, onion, carrots and mushrooms in pan and cook for 5 mines until soft
  5. Sprinkle veggies with flour and stir until no raw flour remains
  6. Add wine and thyme and cook until wine is reduced by 1/3, stirring occasionally
  7. Add chicken stock and stir to mix in
  8. Place chicken back in the mixture and simmer for 35-40 minutes until chicken is cooked
  9. Serve with mashed or Lyonnesse potatoes
  10. Enjoy!

Insider Tips: Don’t have a dutch oven? Consignment and thrift stores, like Consignments Ltd., are great places to score one. For other great recipes, check out my previous blogs: Best of The Season with These 3 Autumn Recipes and Three Easy Summer Recipes.
