    Made this last nite, it only takes about an hour. It is tender and tasty and well worth making.

    Legs and thighs
    1 onion, rough chop
    button mushrooms
    baby carrots
    4 cloves garlic chopped
    Bouquet Garnis (thyme, basil, rosemary and tarragon tied in a bundle)
    1 cup white wine
    1 cup chicken broth
    1/4 lb bacon, diced
    1 Tbsp tomato paste
    butter
    S & P
    flour, to dredge the chicken


    In a large pan cook the bacon till crispy, drain on paper towels. Add some butter to the bacon fat and dredge the chicken pieces in flour and brown on both sides. Reserve the chicken and add more butter to the pan and saute the onion, carrots and mushrooms for about 3 - 4 minutes, add the paste and garlic and stir in for 1 minute.
    Deglaze pan with the wine for 3 minutes, add the broth, bacon, chicken and bouquet garnis. Bring to a boil, lower heat and cover and simmer for 30 -45 minutes or untill chicken is 180 degrees.


    We had some chive mashed potatos with it. Great meal for a cold nite!

    Ingredients


    Forgot to take pics while I was cooking.:o

    But this is how it looked finished!:)

    I make coq au vin pretty frequently, and it's not difficult at all. Here's a tip that will really put it over the top: partially deglaze the pan with the wine you're using, then finish the deglaze (second step) with cognac. It adds a real depth of flavor. :)

    That is an excellent idea.

    Pro tip: Bud Lite will not work for this step, people. :D

    Hamms. Oh man. Haven't had that in a while. That was back when I bought 40 oz Schlitz Malt Liquor.

    I haven't seen Olympia in a long time.

    How about 211 Steel Reserve?
