Simple Coq au Vin

This is my simple version of Coq au Vin, it is absolutely delicious and very simple to make, the longer you let it cook the better it gets. I use a tagine to cook this how ever it also works in a casserole dish or a heavy saucepan with lid. You can also add what ever vegetables you like it tastes great if you put a handful of beans about 5 minutes before you serve it they go soggy if you put them in too early. I always serve mine with penne pasta as well.

Ingredients

Serves: 4 

  • splash of olive oil for frying
  • 1/2 a diced white onion
  • 2 rashers diced middle bacon
  • 500g diced chicken breast
  • 2 diced carrots
  • 1 red or yellow capsicum, diced
  • 1/2 a teaspoon each dried rosemary, thyme & marjoram
  • 1 bottle dry white wine
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • splash Worcestershire sauce

Directions

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Heat the pan and fry the garlic and olive oil till fragrant.
  2. Add the onions cook till translucent but not brown, add the bacon then brown the chicken in the same pan.
  3. Add the rest of the vegetables and herbs cook till the vegetables soften
  4. Add the whole bottle of wine and bring to the boil for 2-3 minutes place the lid on the pan (I always use a tagine but a saucepan or casserole dish works just as well) and reduce to simmer on a low heat for at least 45 minutes until it no longer tastes 'winey' and it has thickened. The longer you cook it the better it tastes :)
  5. Enjoy!!
