A very flavorful chicken topped with a creamy mushroom sauce. A simple recipe for any busy night.
- 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
- salt, gralic powder and ground black pepper, to taste
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup mushrooms, large cuts
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
- 1 tbsp mustard
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Season chicken thighs with salt, garlic powder and pepper.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; set aside.
Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add garlic and mushrooms, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 2-3 minutes; season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir in chicken broth, thyme, oregano and basil. Return chicken to the skillet.
Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 175 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes. Set aside chicken; reserving juices in the pan.
Stir in heavy cream, Parmesan and mustard. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.
Serve chicken immediately, topped with mushroom mixture.
