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