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 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. In the meantime, season the chicken thighs with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Place the chicken in the hot skillet, skin-side down, and sear for about 4 to 5 minutes until browned. Flip and continue to cook the other side for another 4 minutes. Set the chicken aside when done.
Step 3: In the now-empty skillet, melt 2 tbsp butter. Then, add the onion and saute for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the onion has browned. Add the chopped garlic along with thyme and 1 tsp Italian seasoning. Continue to cook for a minute more.
Step 4: Stir in the flour and cook for only 1 minute until no longer white. Then, gradually pour in the wine, adjusting the heat to high. Cook for a couple of minutes more.
Step 5: Pour in the chicken stock and heavy cream. Mix well and cook for additional 5 minutes until the mixture has slightly reduced. To taste, season with salt and pepper. Place the chicken back into the skillet.
Step 6: Place the skillet in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven when done, and serve the chicken thighs right away garnished with some fresh thyme. Enjoy with rice, mashed potatoes, or roasted veggies.
