Added by: on Jan 13th, 2011
This abbreviated version of coq au vin is best made with red wine chicken stock, which is broth made exactly like brown chicken broth, except that red wine is used instead of water (but you can get by without it). Use a soft, low-tannin, low-acidic wine, such as a Merlotfrom Argentina. If you want .. more >

Prepare the chicken as directed, and then transfer to warmed plates or a platter and pour the fat out of the pan. Pour the wine and the glaze into the pan and boil down until lightly syrupy. This will happen faster if you are using meat glaze and will not happen if you do not use the stock or glaze. Add the vinegar, boil for 30 seconds, and whisk in the butter. If the sauce gets too thick, thin it with a little heavy cream, broth, or water.


Season with salt and pepper and pour over the chicken or pass in a sauceboat at the table.

When the chicken is fully cooked, allow it to rest at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes, during which time the internal temperature will rise about 5°F. Then carve the chicken into serving pieces.
