  • 2.2 lb (1kg) chicken thighs, boneless
  • 8 oz (250g) baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup (125g) heavy cream
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • Ground black pepper
  • Salt
  • Unsalted butter for frying
  • Green onions for garnishing, chopped


  • Season the chicken thighs from both sides with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Heat a large skillet over a medium-high heat and add the butter.
  • When the butter has melted, add the onions and garlic and cook until they started browning.
  • Place the chicken thighs onto the skillet and fry on each side for 8 minutes or until golden brown.
  • When the chicken has a nice, crispy crust on both sides and is no longer pink in the center, transfer it from the skillet to a clean plate and set aside.
  • On the same skillet, cook the mushrooms for about 5 minutes or until they reduce in size and started browning. Then add the heavy cream, season with salt and black pepper to taste, and cook for additional 5-10 mins. 
  • When the mushroom sauce is slightly thickened, add the chicken back to the skillet and let it cook without flipping it for another 2 minutes.
  • Serve hot, topped with freshly chopped green onions over a side dish of your choice.
