Evening friends! I hope you all have had a nice relaxing weekend. The weather has been BEAUTIFUL here the last few days, so we have really been enjoying playing outside and seeing the sun. Tonight I made this scrumptious chicken dinner for my family.
Chicken Thighs with Thyme, Mushrooms, and Bacon
4 Bone-In, Skin-on Chicken Thighs
1 large package of mushrooms, sliced
5 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
Four Springs of Thyme
Salt, Pepper, and Poultry Seasoning, about a tablespoon each
Preheat your oven to 375.
Marinate your chicken thighs in a few tablespoons of olive oil with about 2 springs of thyme that have been taken off the sprig. Season your marinate and massage your chicken. You can do this all in a plastic Zip top bag if you don’t want to touch the chicken. Marinate anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on how much time you have.
Add your chicken to a hot pan, skin side down first. The first side will take about 10 minutes and the second side for about 5 minutes.
Take out your chicken and lower the temp. to medium. Add in all your mushrooms. Cook them in the olive oil and chicken fat that have rendered out while cooking. This will take about 6 minutes. Stir to coat all mushrooms.
Add in your cooked bacon. Add your chicken thighs back in,along with the rest of the thyme right on top.
Finish cooking in the oven for about 40 minutes.
I served with some steamed broccoli, Parmesan noodles, and crusty bread.
