- Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan or flameproof dish. Tip in 3 trimmed and chopped smoked back bacon rashers and fry until crisp. Remove and drain on kitchen paper.
- Add 12 peeled shallots to the pan and fry, stirring or shaking the pan often, for 5-8 mins until well browned all over. Remove and set aside with the bacon.
- Take 2 chicken legs, 4 chicken thighs and 2 boneless chicken breasts, all with skin removed and pat dry with kitchen paper.
- Pour ½ tbsp olive oil into the pan, then fry half the chicken pieces, turning regularly, for 5-8 mins until well browned. Remove, then repeat with the remaining chicken. Remove and set aside.
- Scatter in 3 finely chopped garlic cloves and fry briefly, then, with the heat medium-high, pour in 3 tbsp brandy or Cognac, stirring the bottom of the pan to deglaze. The alcohol should sizzle and start to evaporate so there is not much left.
- Return the chicken legs and thighs to the pan along with any juices, then pour in a little of 600ml red wine, stirring the bottom of the pan again.
- Stir in the rest of the wine, 150ml good-quality chicken stock and 2 tsp tomato purée. Drop in 3 thyme sprigs, 2 rosemary sprigs and 2 bay leaves to make a bouquet garni, season with pepper and a pinch of salt, then return the bacon and shallots to the pan.
- Cover, lower the heat to a gentle simmer, add the chicken breasts and cook for 50 mins - 1hr.
- Just before ready to serve, heat 1 ½ tbsp olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add 250g chestnut mushrooms, halved if large, and fry over a high heat for a few mins until golden. Remove and keep warm.
- Lift the chicken, shallots and bacon from the pan and transfer to a warmed serving dish. Remove the bouquet garni.
- To make the thickener, mix 2 tbsp plain flour, 1 ½ tsp olive oil and 1 tsp softened butter in a small bowl using the back of a teaspoon.
- Bring the wine mixture to a gentle boil, then gradually drop in small pieces of the thickener, whisking each piece in using a wire whisk. Simmer for 1-2 mins.
- Scatter the mushrooms over the chicken, then pour over the wine sauce. Garnish with a handful of chopped flat-leaf parsley.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown bacon in a large, straight-sided ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until fat is rendered, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate. Season chicken with salt and pepper; sprinkle with flour. Working in 2 batches, add to skillet, skin-side down; cook until golden, about 4 minutes a side. Transfer to plate. Remove all but 2 tablespoons fat from skillet.
- Reduce heat to medium. Add onions and mushrooms; season with salt. Cook until golden in spots, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomato paste; cook 30 seconds. Add wine; boil until evaporated, about 8 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Return chicken and juices to skillet; top with bacon. Cook in oven until a thermometer inserted into thickest part of chicken (without touching bone) registers 165 degrees, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley; serve over noodles.

Just as Oregon borrows from Burgundy in vineyards planted with pinot noirs and chardonnays, that region also inspires dinner. The iconic boeuf bourguignon would not be the best choice with chardonnay, but this version of coq au vin, replacing Chambertin with chardonnay, couldn't be better. I went light with it, omitting the bacon lardons. And I gave a nod to Oregon's truffle crop by finishing the sauce with a gloss of black truffle butter. It's a modest investment that elevates the dish. A generous slab of unsalted butter (especially if it's high-fat European-style) could also bolster the sauce, though with less foxy intrigue.

- Heat the oil on medium-high in a 4-quart stovetop casserole or sauté pan. Add the chicken, skin side down, as many pieces as fit comfortably. Cook until lightly browned, season with salt and pepper and turn to brown other side. Remove to a platter when done and repeat with the remaining chicken.
- Add the pearl onions to casserole and toss in fat until lightly browned. Remove to a dish. Reduce heat to low. Add the chopped onion, celery and garlic, cook until softened, and stir in the mushrooms. When they wilt, add the wine, bring to a simmer and season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Return chicken to casserole with any accumulated juices, baste, cover and cook 30 minutes, basting a few more times. Remove the chicken to a platter.
- Increase heat to medium-high and cook the sauce and mushrooms about 5 minutes, until sauce thickens slightly. Lower heat, add the pearl onions and butter. When butter melts, check seasonings, return chicken to casserole, baste and simmer a few minutes. Serve from casserole or transfer to a deep platter. Scatter the tarragon on top before serving.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large, heavy Dutch oven over high heat fry the bacon until crisp and all of the fat is rendered. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the crisp bacon bits to paper towels to drain. Set aside and reserve.
- Season the chicken pieces with the salt and pepper. Brown the chicken pieces in the hot bacon fat, working in batches, if necessary, until golden on all sides. Transfer the chicken pieces to a large plate or bowl and set aside. Remove all but about 4 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the Dutch oven. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the chopped onion, pearl onions, shallots and garlic cloves to the Dutch oven and cook until soft, 5 to 6 minutes.
- Add the mushrooms and cook for 7 minutes longer, or until they've released most of their liquid and have begun to brown. Add the flour and tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Slowly add the wine and stock, stirring constantly. Add the thyme, bay leaves reserved bacon and chicken. Bring liquid to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and cook the sauce at a gentle simmer for 15 minutes, until liquid is slightly thickened. Bring the sauce to a boil and cover the pot. Place in the oven and cook for about 1 1/2 hours, or until the chicken is very tender. Transfer the chicken pieces to a serving dish and cover loosely to keep warm. Return pot to medium-low heat. Skim any fat from the surface of the cooking liquid and increase the heat to medium-high. Add the heavy cream and cook until the sauce has thickened slightly and coats the back of a spoon, about 15 to 20 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Return the chicken to the Dutch oven and cook for a few minutes to heat through, then serve.
- Serve with egg noodles and Braised Leeks. Garnish with chopped parsley.
- Using a sharp knife, trim most of the roots off the ends of the leeks, leaving enough so that the leek remains attached at the bottom. Cut each leek lengthwise into halves or quarters, as desired. Run leeks under cold running water, using fingers to loosen and remove any dirt or sand from between the leaves.
- In a heavy skillet or saute pan that has a tight fitting lid, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the leeks to the skillet with any water that is clinging to the leaves from washing them. Cook the leeks, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the stock and thyme and lower the heat to medium-low. Braise the leeks, covered, for about 10 minutes, or until the leeks are very tender. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking dish.
- Drain accumulated juices from chicken-mushroom-tomato mixture into a separate saucepan and transfer chicken-mushroom-tomato mixture to the prepared baking dish.
- Pour wine into saucepan with juices and bring to a boil. Add cream and Gruyere cheese; cook and stir until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Stir cornstarch and water together in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved; mix into cream sauce until smooth and thickened. Pour sauce over chicken-vegetable mixture; top with onion.
- Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This is from my Eat Well Stay Well cookbook. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm typing it up for ZWT. This is a white wine version of the French county stew and is much lower in fat than the original. This could probably be adapted to be a crock pot recipe.

- In a large Dutch oven over medium high heat, cook the pancetta bits until golden and a bit crisp. Remove them, using a slotted spoon and set them aside on a small dish.
- Add a bit of olive oil to the pot. Salt and pepper the chicken pieces and brown them on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, in small batches. Put the pieces aside in a large dish as you work.
- Add the mushrooms to the pot, continuing on medium high heat. If you need to, add just a smidgen of oil. Brown the mushrooms until they are a deep golden brown. This will give your dish great flavor. They will release some water during the process, but keep them going and do not add any salt at this stage. They'll begin to dry up and get brown and delicious. Once they are, add the shallot, pearl onions, celery and carrot. Continue cooking until the shallots soften. Add the garlic and cook for just a minute. Add the flour and stir to coat all of the vegetables.

Top Asked Questions
Which is the best coq au vin recipe?Julia Child's Coq Au Vin is undeniably the best. This recipe sticks very much to the original, only minorly changing the ingredients and cooking method to bring it in line with the times. While Coq au Vin (or chicken in wine) might sound fancy, it is really just a simple French chicken stew that anyone can master.
How long to cook coq au vin blanc?Using a large spoon, skim the fat from the surface of the liquid. Set the pan over medium-high heat and simmer until the sauce is thickened, 12 to 15 minutes.
How do you cook coq au vin chicken?Liberally sprinkle the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. When the bacon is removed, brown the chicken pieces in batches in a single layer for about 5 minutes, turning to brown evenly. Remove the chicken to the plate with the bacon and continue to brown until all the chicken is done.
How to make coq au vin with frozen mushrooms?Mash 1 tablespoon of butter and the flour together and stir into the stew. Add the frozen onions. In a medium saute pan, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and cook the mushrooms over medium-low heat for 5 to 10 minutes, until browned. Add to the stew.
