Chicken Thighs with Savory Sauce over Mashed Potatoes**





**For the Chicken:**
– 4-6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
– Salt and black pepper to taste
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 cup chicken broth
– 1 cup heavy cream
– 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
– 1 teaspoon dried thyme
– Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


##### **For the Mashed Potatoes:**
– 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
– 1/2 cup milk
– 4 tablespoons butter
– Salt and pepper to taste


*Mashed Potatoes:**
1. **Boil Potatoes:** Place the potato chunks in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
2. **Mash:** Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the milk and butter, and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm.

##### **Chicken:**
1. **Prepare Chicken:** Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and black pepper.
2. **Sear Chicken:** In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs, skin-side down, and cook until the skin is golden and crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Flip the chicken and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
3. **Make Sauce:** In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, heavy cream, Dijon mustard, and dried thyme. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.
4. **Cook Chicken in Sauce:** Return the chicken thighs to the skillet, skin-side up. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 15-20 minutes.
5. **Garnish:** Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

##### **Serve:**
1. **Plate the Dish:** Place a generous serving of mashed potatoes on each plate. Top with the chicken thighs and spoon the savory sauce over the top.
2. **Garnish and Enjoy:** Garnish with additional fresh parsley if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious meal!
