Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Season chicken thighs with paprika, salt, and pepper.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken thighs skin-side down in the skillet and cook, without moving, until golden brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Flip thighs over and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  • Add potatoes, cut side down, and cook over medium-high heat until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add carrots and onions and cook until onions are soft and translucent, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup chicken broth, scraping up all the browned bits.

  • Dissolve corn starch in 1/4 cup chicken broth and pour into the skillet. Stir until well combined.

  • Place chicken thighs over vegetables, cover, and cook until carrots are tender and chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.

Tips

I followed the ingredient list to the tea, but I had more chicken 2.5lbs, and more veggies so I made more broth, not really double everything but close. Was it great, it was. I ended up cooking it longer but there was more of it. It's a simple cook and easy eating so yes, I'll cook it again. Read More

I'm so glad this recipe showed up in my inbox tonight. I had to substitute regular size carrots and russet potatoes because I had them on hand. These ingredients are so simple with stuff you probably already have. I didn't give 5 stars because I think it needs a few more herbs. I didn't measure, but I'm sure I used more salt, pepper and paprika than in the recipe. It was like a tasty chicken stew. I will definitely make again. Maybe add oregano next time? The cook times were on point! Read More

It was great. It had a kick, which we liked. You could cut back on paprika if necessary. I will leave it the way it is. Easy. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and it worked fine. Read More

I received this recipe in my email and kept it because I thought it would be easy and maybe tasty. Well, on this occasion it was my turn to cook dinner. I loved this meal. I thought with such little spices, it may be bland. But it wasn't. It was delicious. I wouldn't do one thing differently than the way it's written. THANK YOU! Read More

Family was okay with it but it was just really bland. I suggest adding some mushrooms, wine and fresh herbs to the mix. Easy to make so will try again. A for effort! Read More

I cook for 1 so I made this and was very good. It did not take quite so long to cook though. Afterwards I de boned chicken and chopped veggies a little smaller. Turned it into really good pot pie. Read More
