Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Season chicken thighs on all sides with paprika, salt, and pepper.

  • Cook bacon in a cast iron skillet or oven-safe pan over medium-high heat until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Drain and discard excess grease from skillet.

  • Return skillet to medium heat and cook chicken thighs, skin-side down, for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip chicken over and place skillet in the preheated oven.

  • Bake until chicken thighs are no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Remove all but 2 tablespoons drippings from skillet.

  • Return skillet to the stove over medium-high heat. Pour in chicken broth while whisking up brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. Add mushrooms and cook until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in heavy whipping cream and whisk together until lightly simmering, then reduce heat to medium-low. Season with salt and pepper, if necessary.

  • Return chicken and any juices back into skillet; top with bacon and green onions. Serve immediately, spooning sauce over the chicken.

Great and easy recipe. I would definitely make it again. I added garlic powder in addition to the suggested seasoning to the chicken in the beginning and roasted slices of garlic before adding the broth and some baby spinach 2 minutes after adding the mushrooms to make the sauce. Read More

I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts. Because I don't own an oven-ready skillet I modified recipe instructions to prepare this dish via stovetop method---and it still turned out fantastic. I browned my chicken using the bacon fat grease before discarding all but a tablespoon of it which lent a smoky flavor to the sauce complimenting the mushrooms and fresh green onions. Next time I will be looking at thickening this marvelous sauce. My way of making this dish may have removed the Keto diet benefits--but it sure was a tasty dish my family loved. Read More

used some of the bacon grease when frying the chicken (before it went in the oven)as some others suggested. Also added garlic powder to the seasoning mixture as suggested by others. Whole family enjoyed and I'll be making it again. Read More

This was really good very easy and a hit with everyone. I made it on the stove since I didn't want to heat up the house. Summer in Paradise can be Hell. Next day I added more sauce and put rice in it and again very tasty. Thanks Read More
