Oven dish
Potato Masher


Get Prepped
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Halve and peel the onion, then cut each half into 3 wedges. 
  • Peel the garlic.
  • Halve the mushrooms.
  • Place your hand flat on top of the chicken and slice through horizontally to make two thin steaks.
  • Place a large, oven-proof pot with a lid over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.

TIP: If you don't have an oven-proof pot, use a large pot and transfer stew to an oven dish before placing in oven.

Brown the Chicken
  • Once oil is hot fry the bacon lardons until starting to brown, stirring occasionally, 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat.
  • Add the chicken to the pot. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry chicken until browned all over, 6-8 mins each side, shifting as it colours.
Add the Veg
  • Add 150ml water and 2 tbsp flour (double both for 4p) to the chicken.
  • Mix thoroughly for 1-2 mins, until starting to boil. Remove from the heat.
  • Carefully add the mushrooms, onion, garlic, passata and chicken stock to the pot.
  • Top with half the rosemary (double for 4p) and half the parsley stalks.
  • Mix well and season with salt and pepper.
Slow Cook the Stew
  • Cover the dish with a tight-fitting lid or foil. 
  • Bake in the oven for 40-45 mins until everything is softened and cooked through. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Make the Mash
  • Meanwhile, boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional). 
  • Once boiling, add the potatoes and cook until fork tender, 15-20 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot off the heat. 
  • Add a knob of butter and a splash of water or milk.
  • Mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cover to keep warm.
Finish and Serve
  • Roughly chop the remaining parsley (stalks and all).
  • Carefully remove your Coq sans Vin from the oven.
  • Divide the mash between plates and top with the Coq sans Vin.
  • Garnish with the chopped parsley.

TIP: Tempranillo is a great wine pairing for this dish!
