These budget-friendly chicken thighs make a tasty topping for hot cooked rice, noodles, or pasta. The dish calls for chicken thighs, but feel free to use boneless chicken breasts for a lighter meal.
Garlic and parsley are the simple seasonings in the mushroom sauce. Don't let the richness of the sauce deceive you. Chicken stock, dry white wine, and cream or half-and-half are the sauce components, making it lighter than it tastes.
- 1 1/2 pounds chicken thighs (boneless)
- Salt and pepper (or seasoning blend for chicken)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 8 ounces mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1/3 cup dry white wine, (such as Chardonnay)
- 1/2 cup cream or half-and-half
- 1 to 2 tablespoons parsley (fresh chopped)
Gather the ingredients.
Sprinkle chicken thighs with seasonings.
Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat.
Add chicken and cook, turning, until browned. Remove to a plate and set aside.
Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook, stirring, until mushrooms are tender and browned.
Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Stir in flour until blended. Stir in chicken broth and wine until blended.
Add chicken back to the skillet, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and tender.
Stir in the cream and parsley and heat through.
