Mom’s Chicken En Cocotte
My Mom’s Chicken En Cocotte recipe has been handed down through her family for generations and has been described as delicious, warm and comforting. I am delighted to introduce this family secret to you now! En cocotte is a French cooking term for a type of casserole and it is perfect comfort food on a winter’s day. Have you ever noticed that the most comforting foods can be made using the simplest methods?
My mom’s recipe simply combines a chicken with potatoes, celery, onion, garlic and bouillon cubes to make a delicious braised chicken casserole. I use a whole chicken cut into 8 pieces for this recipe. You can ask your butcher to prepare the chicken for you if you don’t want to do it yourself. Alternatively, you could use bone-in chicken breasts or legs for the same effect.
