Top Rated Coq au Vin Recipes

Cookbook Cover
Literally meaning rooster in wine, it’s important to either find a rooster or an older chicken, like a hen. Why older? It’s the older, tougher bird that’ll stand up to process of braising better than the more common fryer chicken. With that said, if you want to cook this with an ordinary chicken, use two of them and don’t cook them quite as long and you’ll still love the results.

Coq au Vin
Ah yes, classic coq au vin. It’s actually not a difficult dish, especially if you buy your chicken already cut up. It may take a little time to cook, but isn’t that how good, honest home cooking should be? Open up a bottle of wine and enjoy the leisurely pace while the flavors slowly build. — Will Budiaman

Coq au Vin
“This is a classic French dish, usually made with a cockerel. If you can find one, let it cook for 20–30 minutes longer than specified below, because the meat is slightly tougher than ordinary chicken. I like to use a whole bird that I joint myself, but drumsticks and thighs can be used if preferred.” — Kevin Dundon, Back to Basics: Your Essential Step-by-Step Cookbook   Click here for more of our best chicken dishes.

Coq au Vin
We go through a lot of whole, free-range chicken at the restaurant, and I am always searching for ways to use the legs and thighs. Sometimes they end up in sausage or in a small plate to serve in our lounge. But other times, they inspire my version of a classic French bistro dish. Feel free to substitute dry white wine for the red, and you’ll have coq au vin blanc. This recipe is courtesy of Heartland: Farm-Forward Dishes from the Great Midwest cookbook by Lenny Russo and Burgess Lea Press.

Coq Au Vin
This classic French recipe is executed simply and easily here. Don't worry if you can't find veal stock — go ahead and use chicken stock instead. However, veal stock does add a complexity and body to the flavor of the sauce that can have guests searching for that "je ne sais quoi." See all chicken recipes.
