How to make Chicken Thighs with Creamy Bacon Mushroom Thyme Sauce

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Generously season all sides of the chicken thighs with salt, pepper, and Italian herb seasoning mix (mix of dried thyme, oregano, and other herbs).

Step 3: In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. To the hot oil, add the chicken thighs, skin-side down. Sear for about 5 minutes until nicely brown.

Step 4: To a baking sheet lined with foil, transfer the chicken thighs, skin-side up. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.

Step 5: While baking the chicken thighs, make the mushroom sauce. Start by heating a large skillet with vegetable oil over medium heat. Then, add the sliced mushroom and cook for about 3 minutes, filling only once. Next, add the chopped bacon along with the heavy cream, ⅛ tsp salt and snipped fresh thyme. Bring the sauce to a boil. Stir and quickly decrease the heat to a simmer. Simmer over very low heat for about 2 minutes until the sauce has slightly reduced. To taste, season with more salt.

Step 6: Remove the chicken thighs from the oven when done and transfer the cooked chicken thighs into the skillet. Spoon the sauce and mushrooms over.

Step 7: Serve warm. Enjoy!
