Directions

  • 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

I baked the bacon at 400 degrees for 15 minutes maybe a bit longer because I used thick bacon. I always save some bacon grease in the freezer so I just started frying the thighs while the bacon was in the oven. I also added some fresh baby spinach and fresh mushrooms. Could have been a little thicker. But it was pretty good. Read More
