Ingredients

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • ½ tsp fine sea salt

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

  • 2 tbsp ghee or unsalted butter

  • 16oz (454g) button mushrooms, sliced (about 2 cups

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ¼ cup chicken bone broth

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 2 tbsp capers, drained, for garnish

  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Directions

  • Using paper towels, pat the chicken thighs dry. Gently pound the thighs to an even thickness of about 12 inch with a cast-iron skillet, rolling pin, or mallet. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • In a large cast-iron skillet, melt the ghee over medium-high heat. Cook for 5 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through. Place the chicken on a platter.
  • Add the mushrooms and garlic to the skillet, and season with more ghee if necessary. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are golden brown on both sides. Deglaze the pan with the broth, scraping up any bits from the bottom with a whisk. Reduce the heat to low, add the heavy cream, and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Serve the chicken with the skillet sauce. Garnish with capers and parsley if desired. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. Place on a rimmed baking sheet in a preheated 180°C/350°F oven for about 3 minutes to reheat.
