Coq au Vin is a classic French dish of cock cooked in red wine, traditionally a Bourgogne. Obviously can't call this one as an authentic Coq au Vin as I used chicken drumsticks and pinot noir instead. Besides that, I purposely left out the bacon. The end result was for sure different, but it was absolutely delicious!

Quick Coq au Vin

--adapted from My Recipes
  • 2 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 handful Dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 7 Skinless chicken drumsticks
  • 3 tbsp Corn oil
  • 2 Carrots, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 300 ml Dry red wine
  • 100 ml Chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp Tomato paste
  1. Combine flour, thyme, and salt in a bowl. Coat the chicken drumsticks with flour mixture, shaking off excess flour. Soak the dried mushrooms in a bowl of warm water for 30 minutes until softened. Drain and cut into 2-3 pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning frequently, until they are browned, about 8 minutes. Remove and drain on the paper.
  3. Add in prepared mushrooms and carrot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the aroma is released. Pour in red wine, broth, and tomato paste. Bring the mixture to a boil. Return the chicken drumsticks to the pan. Simmer it over medium heat for about 20 minutes until chicken is done.

Sounds utterly delicious even w/out the bacon. Coq au Vin is one of my favorite chicken dishes and is is so rich in flavor I doubt the bacon was missed :-)

For something 'quick' it certainly doesnt look like it skimps on flavour or any aspect of the classic coq au vin! Ive been wanting to try making this for a while and this looks truly great and so achievable. Awesome, thanks! :)

What a great recipe for Coq au Vin when you don't have the time or don't want to make the effort to cook it the long way. Looks equally satisfying and who would know you didn't spend days in the kitchen slaving over the stove.

Wowo that looks super super delicious.When i make them i marinate the meat in the wine for a day, love this frying idea too.

Lizzy 14/8/11 13:58

Gorgeous! It certainly doesn't look like a quick version...just delectable!

[Reply]
OohLookBel 14/8/11 14:00

Those chicken drumsticks look good enough to eat on their own, but simmering them in wine makes them even better. Love the 'quick' part, too!

This looks truly wonderful Angie! I went to a B&B in central Missouri last fall and we had some wonderful Coq au Vin from a woman who was born in France and grew up in Sweden. It was so amazing. I have been wanting to give a try since then but haven't done it yet. I might try it with your recipe, sounds delicious!

Angie-Love your take on this traditional French dish, with just the drumsticks from the chicken. That's my favorite part, as well.
So perfect with the lighter version of Pinot Noir instead of the dry red wine. Gorgeous photos, and presentation...as always! Buzzed you!!! (via foodbuzz)

p.s. Angie, you might want to check the "typo" error in your first paragraph! (just one word can make a huge difference)
I'm beginning to sound like the "typo police!"...LOL
