Creamy Garlic Parmesan Mushroom Chicken & Bacon

INGREDIENTSFOR THE CHICKEN:

  • 6 chicken thighs (bone-in skin-on or off)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

FOR THE CREAM SAUCE:

  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 7 ounces (200 g) diced bacon
  • 14 ounces (400 g) sliced brown mushrooms (Cremini)
  • 1 cup heavy cream OR half and half*
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Salt only if needed to your taste
  • Extra chopped fresh parsley to garnish
  • Fresh shaved or grated parmesan to garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C | 400°F.
  2. Arrange chicken on a plate. Combine together the olive oil garlic parsley salt and pepper in a jug. Rub the oil mixture over the chicken to completely coat.
  3. Heat a large oven proof pan or skillet over medium high heat. Sear the chicken skin-side down first until skin is crisp and golden brown. Rotate and sear the other side (about 2-3 minutes per side).
  4. Transfer to oven and roast until completely cooked through about 25-30 minutes.
  5. Once chicken is done remove from skillet; set aside. Pour out HALF of the chicken juices left in the pan.
  6. Using the same skillet the chicken was in fry the garlic in the reserved chicken juices over medium heat stirring frequently until fragrant about 1 minute. Add the bacon and fry until just beginning to crisp. Add in the mushrooms and cook until mushrooms begin to soften.
  7. Pour in the cream OR half and half chicken broth and Parmesan; allow to simmer until slightly thickened about 2 minutes. (SEE NOTES if using half and half INSTEAD of cream option.)
  8. Season with pepper. Taste first before adding in any extra salt as the bacon will add the salt.
  9. Add the chicken back into the pan; allow to simmer for 1-2 minutes in the cream to take on the flavours.

Garnish with parsley and shaved or grated parmesan if desired. Serve over rice pasta or steamed/grilled vegetables.NOTESTIPS

If you prefer a thicker sauce whisk together 1 level teaspoon cornstarch with 1 tablespoon cream until lump free and well blended. Add the mixture into the cream sauce while stirring continuously until thickened.
  • If using half and half: Bring to a gentle simmer; whisk 2 teaspoons of cornstarch into 1-2 tablespoons of *extra* half and half; pour cornstarch mixture into the centre of the pan; stir continuously until the sauce thickens and becomes a cream .
  • Nutrition facts are calculated based on skin-on bone in thighs and reduced fat cream.
