  1. Over medium heat, in a large skillet, warm the avocado oil. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Fry in the skillet, until browned or cooked through; remove chicken to a plate with a slotted spoon, reserving juices in the pan.
  2. Add garlic to the frying pan and stir-fry until soft; add mushrooms and sauté until softened, for about 5-7 minutes.
  3. On low heat, add heavy cream, stirring well. Allow to simmer for about 10 minutes stirring often. Stir in parmesan cheese until melted. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add chicken back into skillet and coat with sauce. Serve garnished with parsley.

Serving suggestions

Serve with a fresh side salad or steamed low carb vegetables like broccoli, spinach, or asparagus.

Tips

While chicken thighs are flavorful and satiating because of their higher fat content, feel free to make the dish with chicken breasts (preferably skin on) or chicken drumsticks, or a mix of both. You can also substitute pork chops or slices of pork tenderloin.

    I made this with chicken breasts because I was unable to get thighs. It was very tasty and appealing. Quite easy to make. Turned out like an Alfredo sauce almost.

    This is so amazing! This recipe will be made over and over again in our house. So creamy and flavorful! Helps to salt the mushrooms right away so that they cook down and it makes it easier to scrap the yummy stuff off the bottom of the pan. I did reduce the cream to 3/4 cup. And used 4 thighs. Ummmmm!
