Sheet Pan Coq Au Vin

Test Kitchen-Approved

Author Notes:

This is a lighter version of the more wintry classic dish made with red wine. This dish is made using white wine, keeping it more summery. It's a family favorite. This recipe comes from my book Sheet Pan Cooking.

This is a very handy recipe that is easy to pull together, but takes much more than 10 minutes of prep time (I'm an experienced cook), and I wouldn't compare it to coq au vin. I'm sure there is a way to make this a bit more flavorful, but I found that by it's nature of being sheet pan cooked, the flavors didn't come together for me. Everything tasted ok, but we didn't find it anything out of the ordinary.

This was incredible and so easy to make! I subbed out pancetta for the bacon, 4 ounces of baby shiitake and then small colored potatoes, it came out great. Amazing flavor and the skins were golden and crispy, everyone was really impressed. The only thing for me was that it took much longer to cook, at least an extra 30-40 minutes, I get paranoid of under-cooking chicken but not overcooking it either, so am still figuring that out. I will leave it in for at least an hour next time before testing for temp. Thanks for a great dish suggestion, this will be a mainstay in my cooking arsenal.

How much olive oil do I drizzle over the chicken?

Made this last night, and I ended up using 2 tablespoons of olive oil. This dish is delicious! Definite keeper.

I made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious. Very easy to make and definitely will make it again. I used a 19 oz can of beans because that’s what I had and I also added two extra pieces of chicken (wanted some left overs). Really tasty, thanks

This was fantastic- I made it once without the bacon for my mom (kosher) and I used dry vermouth. Serve some kind of tomato dish with it.

Hi I was just wondering what kind of wine did you use.

I used Chardonnay in the original but honestly any dry-ish White will do.

I'm not seeing the chicken listed in the ingredients (which could be a problem at my end). What is the amount listed for the thighs? Thanks!

Hi Nancy - thanks for pointing it out! It should be 8 bone-in, skin-on thighs. Picture coming soon!
