Coq au Blanc


  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • ¾ cup green olives
  • ½ basil chopped
  • ½ bunch parsley, chopped

  • 8 chicken thighs – bone-in, skin on
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp preserved lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a large fryingpan, over med-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and brown the chicken thighs on both sides until golden brown, but not cooked through. On your last batch of chicken, throw in sliced garlic and brown for a few seconds. Remove the chicken and garlic and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, wipe out the chicken oil and add 2 tablespoons fresh olive oil. Add the celery, onions and carrots to make the mirepoix. Cook for about 10 minutes or until caramelized.
  3. Return chicken to pan. Stir in 2 teaspoons of macerated preserved lemon with 1 cup of warmed chicken stock. Pour the mixture over the chicken.
  4. Cover and put in the oven for 40 minutes at 350°F.
  5. Remove from the oven and pour in 1/2 cups chicken stock. Then toss in olives and sprinkle with the parsley, basil, olives, lemons and place back in oven, uncovered, for 20 min.
  6. Remove and serve.

    This is the most gorgeous cooking vessel I’ve ever seen in my life. My life won’t be complete without one… and it’s my favourite colour. It was clearly meant to be 😍

  8. Brought a calendar to work today to plan out my Whole30 dinners. Now I’m imagining the possibilities of crafting these recipes in this gorgeous cocotte. And my tummy’s grumbling…

  9. I would LOVE to win this! I currently do not own any Dutch ovens or stoneware like it. Starter doing Whole30 18 days ago and going strong. A pot like this would really help in all my cooking! Love ya Terri! So glad I found your account!

  10. That recipe looks amazing. Anything with green olives must be good. Can’t wait to try it

  11. Love your cooking and IG videos. You marinated onions are delish. I would love to win this Staub pan and cook just like you!

    • Thank you! We really have a lot of fun making the videos. Please come over and view the stories for more giveaways which are always happening or just around the corner.

  12. This is going on my list!!

  13. I’m a new follower. I began the Whole 30 program this month and watch you the week you took over IG Whole 30. Loved it! Now I am loving your blog and IG. Thanks for the recipes!

  14. Loved your WHOLE30 takeover on IG!! Addicted to your IG Stories & recipes!! I’m itching to go to London now & try all the food adventures you’ve been posting about! We have a new Airlines at Stewart Int Airport right by me that flies to the U.K.!!! Norwegian Airlines here from upstate NY. I live in the beautiful Hudson Valley! I taught my oldest daughter of 6 kids to cook many years ago, but she quickly surpassed me in her skills & is like a gourmet chef now! I would love ❤️ to give her this gift. For many many years I was extremely ill & bedridden & she so lovingly helped me raise her younger siblings & prepared many a meal for our large family. I was a single mom & she was my “right hand man” so to speak! I cherish her & all she did for all of us all those yrs.☺️ She has many stomach issues & has become vegan but can’t even eat certain vegetables & legumes. So she had to recently start adding salmon & other fish to her diet after many years as a vegan. Her husband started a WHOLE30 several months ago & lost 20 pounds & start sleeping better & his health greatly improved & he continues to eat while 30 & so does my daughter on her limited diet. She’s been gluten free for many years also. She’s so creative & just brilliant in the kitchen with her cooking repetoire! She’s overall an outstanding woman that does full time volunteer work in our community. I am going to share your recipes with her. She still lovingly prepares WHOLE30 meats & other foods she can not have for her husband. Thanks for all you do in sharing your knowledge & creativity in the kitchen with all of us! I’m looking forward to a WHOLE30 myself soon! I’ve been already starting to cook at home with WHOLE30 inspired recipes. Sincerely, @koreanhillie (aka Teresa)
