Garlic Mushroom Chicken Thighs

Gluten Free Living – 2022

Oh my goodness, Garlic Mushroom Chicken Thighs was my find of the year! No kidding. We loved, loved, loved this recipe! My main modifications were extra oil (because my enameled cast iron skillets require it) and a little water. I made two batches of this recipe to take to a potluck for “Empty Nesters” at our church. The dish was cleaned out and I had so many people come up to me and tell me they loved this chicken dish. Yay!

I wanted to bring a main dish with meat, but not pasta, chili or a casserole. So as I was looking through recipes, I came across this one and decided I would give it a try. Granted, this is much easier to make for a simple home or company dinner where you don’t have to transport the dish. But even still, this was so good and enjoyed by so many that I can’t NOT recommend it for any occasion! (I’m sure you love that double negative.) 🙂

Another delightful thing about this entree is it only takes about 20 minutes to prepare – especially if you’re making only a single batch. It’s terrific for week night dinners when you need to get dinner on the table quickly before taking your kids to athletic practices or events. On top of that, the recipe is gluten free if you have family members who are gluten intolerant.

Garlic Mushroom Chicken Thighs is the real deal. You can pair it with any kind of sides including salads or hot dishes. Prepare yourself for one delicious meal. It’s so very good that you’re family and friends will want you to make it for them often. Seriously!

Cut off any excess chicken fat from the chicken and discard. (Save time by doing this when you bring it home from the grocery store, so it’s all ready to go.)

The seasonings of thyme and rosemary and parsley make this chicken irresistibly tasty, in my opinion.

Instructions
CHICKEN:
  1. Pat the chicken pieces down with paper towels.
  2. If necessary, trim off any excess fat.
  3. Combine onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle coating on the chicken pieces and pat lightly into both sides of chicken.
  5. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium to medium-high heat.
  6. Sear the chicken thighs until cooked through approximately 8 minutes on each side.
  7. Add additional olive oil before cooking remaining side, if necessary.
  8. Remove chicken to plate and keep warm.
  9. If necessary, add additional tablespoon of olive oil to each skillet and continue cooking chicken until all the pieces have been cooked.
  10. Add additional olive oil when turning chicken pieces over.
  11. Remove all chicken pieces and transfer to warming plate to keep warm.
GARLIC MUSHROOM SAUCE:
  1. Meanwhile, as chicken pieces are cooking prepare sauce: Place one tablespoon butter and 8-oz. sliced mushrooms in skillet.
  2. Season skillet with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Cook mushrooms until soft, approximately 3 minutes.
  4. Add thyme, rosemary and garlic to skillet.
  5. Sauté until garlic is fragrant – approximately one minute.
  6. Don’t overcook or the garlic will become bitter.
  7. Return chicken pieces to each skillet (trying not to crowd the chicken).
  8. Check seasonings.
  9. Add additional salt and pepper, if desired; if the pan seems dry, stir in water.
  10. Spoon sauce over chicken pieces.
  11. Garnish chicken in skillet with freshly minced parsley to serve.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: I added a little water to the sauce in the pan since mine was pretty dry. Because I needed to transport the chicken, I didn’t want it drying out too much.

NOTE: To save time, have the chicken thighs trimmed of excess fat before preparing the entree.
