Quick Coq au Vin (Bon Appetit)

Quick Coq au Vin (Bon Appetit)

Introduction

Delish...
"The quick coq au vin is a streamlined twist on the labor-intensive French classic. Instead of the chicken being browned in bacon fat and then braised in broth, Cognac, and wine while onions and mushrooms are cooked separately and the liquid then thickened, our skillet version takes just 45 minutes from start to finish. What's more, it captures all the savory richness of the original."

    I love this recipe! I am watching my carbs, so I skipped the flour and cut the wine a little. It was a tad salty as a result, so I added a dash of half and half to smooth it out. I also used some some thyme for a nice well-rounded flavor. Will make again, and often. - 4/18/12
