Braised chicken cooking class [Feb 13]

We often hear people being bored by their regular chicken recipes, so if this is you, read on and learn about our Braised Chicken cooking class.

We will teach you to see braised chicken (stews) as an empty canvas that you can color any way you like. Use the same technique, but other ingredients, other seasonings and you can eat something else each day of the week. Or month. Or just every now and then, whenever you feel like it.

Give us 90 minutes of your time on a Monday night and let us explain!
(Or watch the recording at your own convenience.)

Why would I want to braise chicken?

All cultures have dishes for braised chicken. Whether you want to make a classic French braised chicken stew like coq au vin, a Thai coconut chicken dish, or Southern smothered chicken: in essence they are very similar.

At first, you sauté the main ingredients, then you add a liquid, let it all simmer and wait for time to do it’s magic. That’s really what any braised chicken recipe is all about.

So why should I take this Braised Chicken cooking class?

What our Learn to cook without recipes classes make stand out from other cooking classes, is that in each class we will focus on 1 subject only. We won’t be following a recipe. You can do that on your own or take another cooking class for that. Instead, we dive a bit deeper. Together we will study the anatomy of the dish and break it down to it’s bare bones. All to learn what techniques and ingredients are essential and what elements we can play with.

In this Braised Chicken cooking class we will discuss the technique of braising and stew making, what tools you can use, and how you can play with the ingredients to make your own version (taste). Our goal is to teach you how to make and understand various ways to make braised chicken, so you can find out which works best for you!

Once you understand how a dish or a technique works, you can use this knowledge to leave out, replace or add ingredients when you are following someone else’s recipe, or you even can start to improvise and create your own recipes. Pinky promise!

What you’ll learn

  • Why braised dishes are great
  • How to cook braised chicken, we will break it down in easy to follow steps
  • What cuts you can use and which won’t work
  • What other ingredients you can add to your braised chicken
  • Why a Dutch oven is great to make braised chicken
  • How to make braised chicken if you don’t have a Dutch oven (Yep, that’s totally possible!)

What can you expect?

After you’ve signed up, you will get an email with your homework. Yes! 😉

For this class, we will ask you to look up a few recipes for braised chicken that use the same ingredients that we are planning to use in the class. You also get a grocery and tools list and the Zoom link.

On Monday, February 13th, 2023 we will virtually open our kitchen 10 minutes before class starts, so we have some time to set up and chat a bit. Then chef Edie will introduce herself, explain the program of the class and we get to cook. She won’t control if you did your homework, so no stickers from us, but being a bit prepared for the class will help you gain confidence and understand what we’re up to

Since this is not your ordinary cooking class, besides your homework, we will also be doing an experiment (see an example) together to help you fully understand the technique(s) used

Since this is not your ordinary cooking class, besides your homework, we will also be doing an experiment together to help you fully understand the technique(s) used (here’s an example).

After class has ended you can enjoy what you’ve cooked.


We believe that becoming a more confident and creative cook all boils down to understand what is going on in your pots and pans. If you know why you are doing it and how you are doing it, you can become more free of recipes. You can decide for yourself to follow the instructions or go your own way. That’s why we set up our classes the way they are.

  • A Dutch oven or a skillet (with something you can use as a lid) or an oven safe dish

  • Full grocery and tools list will be provided after signing up

About your chef

In her cooking classes, chef Edie loves to explain what happens in your pots and pans. In these 1 subject only cooking classes we will dive a bit deeper than just follow a recipe. It won’t be super science-y, but often we will do experiments so you can taste the difference between various methods, cooking techniques or seasonings. All to empower you to get a bit looser with recipes so you can come a more confident and creative cook.

Get in touch with any questions you have.
