  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 4 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced

  • ½ onion, chopped

  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Heat vegetable oil over medium-heat in a large skillet. Season chicken thighs on both sides with thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper. Place thighs, skin-side down, into the hot skillet and cook until browned, about 8 minutes. Flip thighs over and brown other side, an additional 8 minutes. Remove thighs from skillet onto a large plate, and set aside. Reduce heat to medium-low.

  2. Add mushrooms to skillet and cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in white wine and scrape browned bits off the bottom of the skillet. Simmer until wine is reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth and allow mixture to come back to a simmer.

  3. Return chicken thighs to the skillet, and cook, covered, until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Stir in heavy cream and cook until just heated through, about 1 more minute. Adjust salt and pepper and sprinkle with fresh parsley just before serving.
