Chicken & Mushroom Recipe

I got this recipe from Damn Delicious and just had to share! It is so yummy and easy!!

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, halved 
  • 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 tablespoon whole grain mustard

Ok here is what you need to do...

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
  • Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  • 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 tender and browned, about 5-6 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

TIP: Use a wooden spoon to get all the "grit" from the mushroom and butter off the bottom of the pot.. this will give your dish flavor when you add the liquids!

  • 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.

I served the chicken dish with mashed potatoes but egg noodles or rice would be yummy too!

It is as Simple As 1-2-3!
