Total Time:
35 mins


  • 8 chicken thighs (about 4 pounds), skin on

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoon snipped fresh rosemary

  • 2 tablespoon snipped fresh thyme

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 8 ounce fresh button or cremini mushrooms, halved and/or quartered

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • ½ cup dry white wine or chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard

  • 1 tablespoon snipped flat-leaf Italian parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Season chicken on both sides with salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon of the rosemary, and 1 tablespoon of the thyme. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a 12-inch cast iron skillet or very large oven-going skillet. Add chicken, skin side down, to the hot oil and cook for 5 to 7 minutes until browned on one side. Turn chicken pieces over and place skillet into the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until done (at least 170°F).

  2. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Add mushrooms to skillet and turn heat to medium-high; cook stirring occasionally for 4 minutes. Add flour to skillet, stirring to coat. Stir in chicken broth, wine, and mustard. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Remove skillet from heat and add remaining rosemary, thyme, and parsley. Serve mushrooms sauce over chicken.
