Quick Coq au Vin

I opened a bottle of wine last week but unable to finish it...
Ingredients: 2 chicken breast halves (skin on would be nice!), handful of mushrooms (only had white button), 1 shallot, couple leaves of cilantro, 2 cups of chicken broth (used a bouillon cube), 1 cup of red wine.
Fry chicken with some salt and pepper, set aside.
Add more oil to the pan, saute mushrooms and shallot.
When mushrooms sweat down in size, add cup of wine and let reduce. Add cilantro.
Whisk 3 tbsp of flour to chicken broth. Add broth to wine and mushrooms. Simmer.
This is an optional step: Preheat the oven to 300 F, place chicken and sauce in a pan to heat and mingle for 20 minutes.
Voila, chicken and perfect wine glaze.
Serve with veggies, cauliflower seen here.
Enjoy a fab meal in under an hour!
