With all the chicken thigh recipes on this blog, one of my favorites here! The use of boneless chicken hips means faster cooking time compared to chicken hips in the stove bone oven.

How to cook chicken thighs

To prevent overcrowding, wrap up to 3 or two fillets at a time, depending on your pan size. Please don’t be tempted to throw all the fillets in the pan! The steamed chicken will be pale and tasteless. No, Bueno.

Instead, each thigh needs space between them, which wraps your chicken in a beautiful golden brown color, locks in moisture and causes the juicy taste you want!

INGREDIENTS

For The Chicken:
  • 1 1/2 pounds (700g) boneless skinless chicken thighs (around 6-8 fillets)
  • 1 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of dried thyme and rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
For The Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 ounces (250 g) sliced brown mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary (adjust to your taste)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream / thickened cream (evaporated milk or half and half)*
  • 1/2 cup fresh shredded parmesan cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel and trim off excess fat. Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, herbs, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken evenly with the combined seasoning.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and sear chicken thighs in batches until browned on each side and no longer pink in centre (about 8 minutes each side, depending on thickness). Add remaining oil if needed for second batch. Transfer to a plate; set aside and keep warm.
  3. To the same pan or skillet, melt the butter and add the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and cook until soft (about 3 minutes). Add the garlic, parsley, thyme and rosemary; sauté until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  4. Stir in cream, bring to a simmer, then reduce heat and continue cooking until sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in the parmesan cheese and allow it to melt through the sauce for a further 2 minutes, while occasionally stirring.
  5. Return chicken to the pan. Taste test and season with salt and pepper to your taste. Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve immediately.
NOTES

*You CAN use fresh herbs if you have them! 2 teaspoons each of fresh herbs is fine. If you don’t like Thyme or Rosemary, substitute with Basil and Oregano, or use Tarragon. **Heavy or thickened cream is used for low carb/high fat purposes. If counting calories and/or fat macros instead, use evaporated milk, reduced fat cream or half and half.

  • For a dairy free option, I find Cashew milk the best in flavour. You can also use almond milk or rice milk. Thicken with a cornstarch slurry (2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water, mix to blend well and add to the sauce, stirring quickly, until thickened)

Optional: For even more amazing flavour, add in 1/3 cup dry white wine with your mushrooms and cook it down to half before adding in your garlic and cream!

    Do this tonight. The evaporated milk used (and the cheese left out – I just didn’t want it) the sauce was a bit thinner but the food was still incredibly tasty. Thanks for a great recipe – I buy chicken leg a lot and it’s great to have a new recipe that I know I will love!

    Chicken thighs are delicious and relatively inexpensive, they are perfect for a family meal. I love boneless and skinless chicken thighs. They are very tasty and really easy to cook!

    HOW TO MAKE THIS CREAM CHICKEN ITEMS?
    Season the boneless and skinless chicken thighs with lemon and salt.
