This Disney version of coq au vin is alcohol-free and kid-friendly. But you can use dry red wine in place of the grape juice for more of a classic recipe.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: French
Serves: 6 servings (8 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons dairy-free buttery spread (can sub olive oil)
  • 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup 100% red grape juice
  • ¼ cup lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups quartered mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon buttery spread in a large enamel-coated Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes or until browned, turning once. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  2. Add the celery, carrots, and onion to the pot and cook for 6 minutes or until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, and cook for 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add the tomato paste and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add the broth, grape juice, lemon juice, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Heat to a simmer, scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the Dutch oven with a wooden spoon. Reduce the heat to low, add the chicken, cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165°F and the vegetables are tender.
  3. Stir in the mushrooms. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender. Transfer the chicken to a plate, and cover to keep warm.
  4. Whisk the flour and remaining 1 tablespoon buttery spread in a small bowl. Stir the roux into the mixture in your pot. Increase the heat to medium, and cook for 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  5. Cut the chicken into large pieces. Add the chicken to the pot and cook for 3 minutes or until heated through.
  6. Serve the Coq au Vin garnished with thyme, if desired.
