Ingredients

  • 6 thighs, boneless skinless
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet to medium high and add the olive oil.
  2. When hot, brown the chicken thighs on both sides. This should take about 3 minutes per side.
  3. Take out the thighs and set aside. Add the butter and sliced mushrooms and brown for about 3-5 minutes.
  4. When the mushrooms are browned, add the broth, thyme and garlic and mix well.
  5. Add back the chicken, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes over medium heat.
  6. Take out the thighs to make this part easier. Add in the cheese and cream and mix well until the cheese is melted.
  7. Take off the heat and add in the spinach. Mix and then pour over chicken thighs or add the thighs back to the skillet if serving from the skillet.
  8. Serve as is for a low carb dinner or over egg noodles.
