Spinach Artichoke Chicken Thighs in Baxter MN

Ingredients:

  • 6 chicken thighs bone in, skin on
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • ⅓ cup chicken broth
  • ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 6 ounces artichoke hearts drained and chopped
  • 5 ounces frozen spinach thawed and squeezed dry

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350F. Pat the chicken thighs dry and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large ovenproof skillet. Add the chicken thighs, skin side down, and cook undisturbed for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown.

Flip the thighs over and cook another 4 minutes, then transfer to a plate.

Add minced garlic to the pan and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in the broth to deglaze the pan, scraping up any browned bits. Bring to a simmer. Add the cream and Parmesan cheese and
continue to cook until slightly thickened, another 1-2 minutes.

Stir in the chopped artichokes and the spinach until well combined. Place the chicken thighs on top of the cream sauce and bake for a remaining 20 to 25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked, and the sauce is bubbling.

**Serve with a side of roasted vegetables.
