  1. Blot chicken thighs with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Melt butter with olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Place chicken thighs in the hot oil and cook until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from the skillet and keep warm.
  3. Add carrots, onion, and minced garlic to the same skillet, stirring to coat with pan drippings. Season with salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes. Nestle browned chicken thighs into the vegetables, pour wine and 2 tablespoons water over everything, and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  4. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until carrots are fork-tender and chicken juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove chicken and vegetables from the skillet with a slotted spoon.
  5. Combine cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl, stirring to dissolve any lumps. Add slurry to the drippings in the skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Pour sauce over chicken pieces and vegetables and sprinkle with fresh parsley to serve.
