This coq au vin blanc recipe is not only easy to make, it’s delicious and will totally impress your guests when you serve it to them at your next party.
This recipe is one of the first chicken recipes I made when I moved out of my parents house and lived on my own.
The flavor of this dish is robust, full-bodied and so delicious that you will want to make it often.
Sometimes I make this dish with chicken that has the bone in and skin on, but lately I try to eat on the healthy side, so I decided to make it with boneless and skinless.

How to make the coq au vin blanc
Heat your Dutch oven on medium. Place 5 pieces of bacon in it and fry them until they are nice and crispy. I find it takes around 8 minutes. Remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate and blot dry.
Leave bacon grease in pan.
Gather the ingredients – crispy bacon, chicken thighs, onion, celery and mushrooms.
Add the chicken to the pan and sauté for 3 minutes on each side. Gather the herbs, bay leaf, chicken broth and wine.
Slice the onion and add it to the pan. (There still should be bacon grease in it, so no need to add oil.)
Stir every few minutes until the onion becomes translucent. It takes about 5 minutes.
Add mushrooms, thyme, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper and sauté for an additional 5 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Add white wine, chicken broth and a bay leaf. Turn up the heat and scrape the bottom of the pan for all the yummies stuck there.
Add the chicken back in the pan and crumble the bacon over it.
Place the pan in the oven for 30 minutes.
Once it’s done, I transfer it all to a smaller pan to serve it.
I make a salad, plate some millet and get ready to eat this delicious dish.
I hope you enjoyed this coq au vin blanc recipe as much as Christopher and I enjoyed eating it.
