Healthy Coq Au Vin (Because The French Do Everything Better)
can be bone-in or boneless, honestly I’ve made it both way
store-bought or homemade
herb de provence
sliced in half lengthwise
washed, cleaned, and sliced thinly
any variety is fine, use your own judgement with this
salt and pepper to taste
Sautee onion and garlic in olive oil until onions become fragrant and nicely cooked. Cook on medium heat.
Add chicken thighs and sear slightly so that they brown a bit. When you feel like the chicken is starting to stick to the pan, add your bone broth, herb de provence, and thyme.
Bring the stew to a boil, then add your wine. Let the mixture simmer for about 20 minutes. Then add your carrots, mushrooms, and tomato paste.
Continue letting the stew simmer until it thickens. Serve with your favorite healthy carbohydrate (I chose dairy-free mashed potatoes, but rice, quinoa, and even noodles would work!)
