Coq Au Vin – Country Living

This was my first try at making Coq Au Vin, but it definitely won’t be the last! I found this recipe over at Country Living, and it was scrumptious!  Tender chicken with crispy bits of pancetta and mushrooms smothered in a heavenly sauce – what more could you ask for?  All of my favorites are contained in this one dish.

For this recipe, I used our 6-Qt. Enameled Dutch Oven, here’s more info on this terrific product:

6-Qt. Enameled Dutch Oven

Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Enameled cast iron is the kind of cookware that will become a fixture at every special meal you make—and that includes weeknight meals. This Dutch oven is beautiful so it’s ready to go directly from your stove (including induction) or oven to your table. You’ll reach for it again and again because it’s low maintenance and versatile.

The 6-qt. (5.7-L) Dutch oven has a light-colored enameled interior, which means you can start using it right away—no seasoning required—and it lets you easily see food browning so you can avoid scorching it. Cast iron’s excellent heat retention means that food stays hot and delicious even if not everyone makes it to the table as soon as dinner’s ready.

The lid has a sturdy handle that makes it easy to manage even with an oven mitt. And, the inside of the lid is covered with bumps that redirect the condensation in the pot to drip back onto the food, making it a self-basting pot. This makes your food juicy, tender, and more flavorful.

Do More With a Dutch Oven

Dutch ovens are known for low-and-slow braises and special-occasion meals. But they can do much more. Heat-safe up to 500°F (260°C), this pot is ideal for simmering sauces and cooking pasta and grains. And, they can even make a delicious loaf of bread.

Product Details

  • Dishwasher safe for easy clean-up. Because the rim around the edge of the cast iron isn’t enameled, we recommend hand drying the baker when the cycle is finished to prevent rusting.
  • 14 lbs. (6.4 kg), 12¾” x 10¼” x 8″ (32 cm x 31 cm x 20 cm)
  • 6-quart, 24 cups, (5.7-L)

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 4 oz. pancetta, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 (3 1/2- to 4-pound) whole chicken, cut into 10 pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. cremini mushrooms, quartered
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 leeks (white and light green parts only), halved and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 c. chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 6 sprigs thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 c. fresh tarragon, chopped

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Slice mushrooms into quarters, and cut chicken into ten pieces; season with salt and pepper.

Open wine, chop onions, slice leeks, peel and chop garlic.

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add pancetta and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Add chicken to Dutch oven and cook, skin side down, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to plate.  

Increase heat to medium-high. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and add onions, leeks, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown and tender, 8 to 9 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Gradually add wine, stirring constantly. Add stock, mustard, thyme, and bay leaves; bring to a simmer.

Return pancetta and chicken (skin sides up) to pot; cover and transfer to oven. Cook until chicken is fork-tender and cooked through, 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes. Discard thyme and bay leaves. Serve topped with tarragon.

Delicious!  This made the house smell glorious while cooking in the oven.  One of the best meals I’ve made, we really enjoyed this recipe.  Please let me know if you give this a try by dropping a comment and photo below.  Let’s make great food together!

Chicken Gnocchi Soup – Creme De La Crumb (Video)

**This is an updated post from a while back.  Since it is definitely soup season where I live, I thought I would share again, with a newer video. **

So, I’ve heard a lot about how wonderfully delicious Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi Soup tastes.  I personally had never had chicken gnocchi soup and tell I made it the other day using this wonderful recipe from Tiffany over at https://www.lecremedelacrumb.com/. You can learn more about Tiffany here.

I checked out her blog briefly, and will definitely be heading back there to try out a few more recipes. This one is definitely a keeper, it has everything I love in it: chicken, gnocchi, cream and spinach.  I changed the recipe only slightly, and that I shredded my chicken instead of cooking it and dicing it. I’m sure that way is absolutely fine, but I was lazy and making shredded chicken is so easy in our Multi Cooker!

Butternut Squash and Chicken Chili (Video)

I had started with a recipe from Country Living, but doctored it enough that it’s not quite the same.  I felt that it was way too watery to be called chili, to be honest.  Also, I did not have any chili seasoning, per se, so I came up with my own version, which is pretty yummy!

For this recipe, I used my new favorite piece, the 5-Qt. Non-Stick Sauté Pan,  for this recipe.  Here’s a little information:

Chop onions and garlic. Peel and cube butternut squash.

Cook ground chicken, onion, and chopped garlic cloves in olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat until chicken is cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes.

Stir in spices and diced green chiles; cook 1 minute. Stir in black beans, fire-roasted tomatoes, San Marzano tomatoes, butternut squash, and chicken stock. Season with kosher salt and black pepper. Simmer, covered, until butternut squash is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Serve immediately with your favorite toppings.

That’s it!  You can save time if you like by purchasing pre-cut squash, if you like.  My picky husband really loves this recipe, so we will be making this again.
