Coq au vin (Slideshow version)

Coq au vin : Photo of step #26

Overview:

Coq au vin is one of those iconic classics of French cuisine, though these days it is more likely to be made with chicken. The poultry is marinated in red wine, fried, then flambéed in cognac before being simmered slowly in the wine marinade.

It has much in common with that other classic, boeuf (beef) bourguignon: delicous tender meat cooked slowly in red wine for several hours.

To simplify the recipe (the site is called cooking-ez, after all), I have used chicken breasts instead of a whole bird.
