Tender chicken thighs are seared until golden and smothered in a creamy mushroom sauce. Enjoy this classic dish with mashed potatoes, buttered noodles or gnocchi, and a side of roasted broccolini.


  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs (6-8 thighs)
  • 1 tsp each salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 package (227 g) sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp each dried thyme and rosemary
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese


  1. Using paper towels, pat chicken dry.
  2. Add flour, salt, and pepper to a shallow bowl; whisk to combine. Lightly coat chicken in flour. Set remaining flour aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sear for 6-8 minutes. Flip and sear for another 6-8 minutes or until browned and internal temperature has reached 165°F. Remove chicken from pan; set aside.
  4. Melt butter in the same skillet. Add mushrooms and onions; cook, stirring occasionally until mushrooms are browned and the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute stirring constantly.
  5. Sprinkle over reserved flour and thyme and rosemary; stir until mushrooms are coated. Add chicken broth, stirring until sauce thickens. Add cream and parmesan cheese; stir until heated through and cheese has melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Add chicken back to the pan, spooning over sauce and mushrooms. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh thyme before serving, if desired.
