To make Garlic Butter Chicken Thighs with Cream, what are the steps?

  1. This dish calls for skinless and boneless chicken thighs, juicy, soft, and tender when cooked.
  2. Cooking the chicken thighs in a skillet until they’re juicy requires a few steps. First, season both sides of the thighs with salt and pepper. Set aside when you’ve removed it from the pan.
  3. Make the creamy sauce and serve it right away using the same pan. Sauté the onion and garlic in the melted butter until fragrant and golden brown.
  4. In a medium saucepan, mix white wine, heavy cream, and salt and bring to a boil. Grate Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper before mixing thoroughly. Add spinach and a slight pepper to the simmering sauce.
  5. Continue to cook the chicken thighs in the sauce for a few minutes more after adding them. Chicken thighs will absorb the sauce’s taste better if spooned over them.

COOK’S TIPS

  • This dish has a distinct flavor because I used white wine instead of chicken broth. Use chicken broth instead of white wine for a kid-friendly supper.
  • Once the chicken is done cooking, put some chili pepper flakes on the dish.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch (mixed with 1 tablespoon water)
  • Ground black pepper
  • 3 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 lbs. (600 g) skinless and boneless chicken thighs

  • Salt
  • 1 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 sweet red mini pepper, diced
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  1. Under running water, trim the fat from the chicken thighs. Paper towels work well for this. Salt and ground black pepper should be applied to both sides of the chicken thighs.
  2. Cook the chicken thighs for 5 minutes on each side, depending on how well you like your meat. Prepare a platter for the chicken, then set it away.
  3. Sauté garlic and onion in butter in a frying pan (or skillet). Add white wine and heavy whipping cream. Sauté the sauce over medium-low heat until it thickens, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir in the spinach and red micro peppers. It’s time to add Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese to the mix. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Make a corn starch and water slurry and stir it into the sauce if you prefer thicker. To thicken the sauce, keep stirring it.
  5. Simmer the chicken for a few more minutes until the thighs have completely taken on the sauce’s flavors. Make garlic butter chicken by combining the sauce and the chicken.
