Coq au Vin

Another recipe gleaned from Weight Watcher website and another one that works so well you would not know it was reduced calorie,  Again I have tinkered with the quantities to suit.

Coq au Vin
Serves 2, 11 pro points per serving

1 cal spray
8 shallots, halved
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
300g chicken thigh, skinless
125ml white wine
150ml stock
100g closed cup mushrooms, halved
1 bay leaf
2 tsp cornflour

Heat a large pan and squirt with 1 cal spray.  Add the shallots and garlic, sauté for 5 mins until golden and caramelised on the edges.  Push them to one side.

Add the chicken and seal them quickly.  Pour in the wine and bubble it up, add the stock, mushrooms and bay.  Cover and simmer for 45 minutes.

Make up the cornflour with a little water and then add it to the pan, increase the heat and stir until thickened. Check the seasoning and serve.

So simple, but with great results, quantities can easily be scaled up.
