Chicken-Breast Coq au Vin

Our healthier take on the traditional French dish relies on a leaner cut: boneless, skinless chicken breasts. The stew is still plenty hearty, especially when served over cooked rice, barley, or quinoa.

    It was flavorful and deliicous! I added some extra garlic since I am a garlic lover and I cooked some chopped carrots with the onion, garlic, and mushrooms. This a a simple yet wonderful coq au vin!

    I agree, it is a bit involved, but sooo delicious especially with added carrots and red potatoes cooked separately in chicken broth until added to the rest of the mixture at the end. I will be making it again!

    This recipe was very time consuming, used a lot of dishes. After all the prep and steps, I expected it to be fabulous, and it was just okay. It was bland, but the thyme garnish helped. I served it over rice with baked bread. The sauce was runny- even after reducing it about 15 min. My husband had this dish in Paris and said it was a bland dish with thin sauce there as well, but tasted better. No offense taken. Not worth the extra time and effort!

    This recipe is fantastic! I had coq au vin at a quaint fench restaurant in Montreal many years ago. I've always wanted to make it, but all the recipes semed too difficult. This was easy and tasted as it did in that quaint little french restaurant. My family simply loved it! C'est bon!
