How to make Herb Roasted Chicken Thighs in Creamy White Wine Sauce

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F.

Step 2: In a large skillet, heat a tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat.

Step 3: Season the entire chicken thighs with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.

Step 4: Once the oil is hot, add the chicken thighs skin-side down to the skillet and cook one side for about 4 to 5 minutes over medium-high heat until brown. Turn the chicken over and continue to cook the other side for another 4 minutes. Set the chicken aside once cooked.

Step 5: Into the same skillet, add 2 tbsp butter. Saute the onion for about 3 to 4 minutes until brown. Stir in the chopped garlic, thyme, and a tsp Italian seasoning. Cook further for a minute until the garlic is not anymore white.

Step 6: Gradually pour in the wine to the hot pan. Adjust the heat to medium-high heat and cook for several minutes before adding in the chicken stock and heavy cream. Stir well and continue to cook for 5 minutes more until the sauce is reduced a bit. Season according to taste.

Step 7: Add the chicken thighs back to the pan with the sauce. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 35 minutes, uncovered. When done, remove from the oven. Garnish with fresh thyme and enjoy with roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or rice.
