Chicken Thighs with Bacon and Sour Cream Sauce

bacon chicken

 

So….chicken thighs were on sale at the store this weekend, and since we are on a tight budget, I bought a lot of them. Seriously, my family and I are going to be eating chicken thighs a lot over the next two weeks. This is something I threw together with some other on sale items and what I had in the fridge.

Ingredients:

4 boneless chicken thighs

1 bunch green onion

3 garlic cloves

salt/pepper to taste

8 slices bacon

1 cup chicken broth

1/3 cup sour cream

 

Directions:

  1. Heat some oil in a skillet and cook the bacon until done, you want it crispy, but not burnt.
  2. Dice the garlic and chop the onion
  3. Remove the bacon to a plate and drain off the grease, leaving 1 tbsp.
  4. Add some olive oil to the pan and season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper on both sides.
  5. Cook the chicken thighs in the oil over med-high heat for about 5 minutes per side, until browned.
  6. Remove the thighs to a plate.
  7.  Add the garlic and half of the bacon  to the pan and cook for about 1 minute.
  8. Add the chicken broth and sour cream and use a spatula to scrap up any browned bits on the bottom.
  9. Return the chicken to the pan, cover and reduce heat to simmer, cooking for about 10 minutes.
  10. Serve chicken with the sauce and topped with the additional bacon and green onion.

Enjoy!
