Ingredient Checklist

Directions

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

    Advertisement
  • 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

Ok. This is a seriously good and easy chicken recipe! Made it for a Keto family whonjustvhad a baby and figured. Looks good enough for us! I added baby spinach, suggested by another cook and added some garlic powder to the chicken broth as it was cooking. We are not Keto so in ours, I added a tablespoon of flour into the whipping cream and mixed, before I put it into the broth/mushroom/spinach mixture because some complained that the sauce was not thick enough. I also doubled the sauce recipe and it was oerfect! Read More

This is delicious. I didn't change a thing except to add a tablespoon of dry sherry to the water because I knew the flavor would work well with the mushrooms. I was out of fresh mushroom so used canned button mushroom and it was still delicious. Not only does it taste great, but it also presents beautifully as well. This is a keeper! Thank you for posting Read More

We loved it! I did add garlic powder to the chicken like others. I also added a little cayenne pepper at the end to the sauce to give it a little bite. Served it with broccoli. I did serve it over rice for my family. Read More

This was very good. I did make a few changes. I used boneless skinless thighs (worked great). I added a medium onion to the mushrooms when sautéing and increased mushroom quantity to 12 oz (increased broth a bit). Then I used a good quality Alfredo sauce instead of cream. Didn’t have any green onion to top but that’s not a necessity. Read More
