Crispy boneless chicken thighs in a thick and creamy mushroom sauce with garlic, herbs and parmesan cheese is the weeknight dinner everyone raves about!
Served over rice, pasta, mashed potatoes OR low carb Keto options like mashed cauliflower or zucchini noodles, this would have to be one of the best ways to enjoy boneless chicken thighs! There’s nothing like a quick and easy chicken recipe to whip up and have on the table in less than 15 minutes!
Chicken Thigh Recipes
With all of the chicken thigh recipes on this blog, this one right here is one of my favourites! Using boneless chicken thighs means a quicker cook time on the stove top when compared with bone-in baked chicken thighs.
How To Cook Chicken Thighs
Sear thighs in batches of two or three — no more than 3 fillets at a time depending on the size of your pan to avoid over-crowding. Please don’t be tempted to throw all fillets in the pan! You will have steamed, pale and tasteless chicken. No bueno.
Instead, each thigh needs space between them which will sear your chicken to a beautiful golden brown colour, locking in moisture, resulting in the juicy flavour you want!
Creamy Sauce for Chicken
PACKED with flavour, this sauce is everything! Start with garlic buttery mushrooms and turn them into the best sauce for your chicken! We use brown (or Cremini) mushrooms, but any kind is fine to use.
Raid your kitchen cupboards and refrigerators, because you most probably have the rest of the ingredients on hand!
Ingredients for Sauce
- Dried herbs — I use dried here because we all have jars of seasonings and herbs hanging around our pantries. You CAN use fresh if you have them! Two teaspoons each of fresh herbs is fine.
- I use Thyme and Rosemary but you can swap anything you don’t like out for what you DO like. Use Oregano, Basil or even Tarragon!
- Heavy or thickened cream is used for low carb/high fat purposes. If counting calories and/or fat macros instead, use evaporated milk, reduced fat cream or half and half.
For even more amazing flavour, add in 1/3 cup white wine with your mushrooms and cook it down to half before adding in your cream! YUUUHM!
