Ingredients

  • 2 pounds skin on, bone in chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 pound mixed mushrooms, halved
  • 2 cups white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons Sir Kensington's Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or cast iron skillet set over medium high heat. When the oil begins to shimmer, add the chicken and sear on both sides until golden, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet. To the skillet, add the butter, onions, garlic, carrots, and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally until the onions have caramelized, about 5-10 minutes. 
    3. Add the wine, cream, mustard, and parmesan. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat and then reduce to low. Slide the chicken back into the skillet, skin side up, it should be mostly submerged. Add the thyme and transfer to the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Serve the chicken topped with fresh thyme.
