  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs skin on
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound button or portobello mushrooms cleaned (and halved if portobellos)
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 yellow onion finely sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 teaspoons Spanish smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • Fresh parsley to serve


  • To prepare the chicken thighs, first season with salt and ground black pepper. Set aside.
  • Place a large cast-iron pot or skillet (make sure it's one with a lid) over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, sear the chicken thighs evenly on both sides (starting skin-side down) until golden brown - about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from pot and set aside on a plate for now.
  • Return the pot to the heat and add the mushrooms. Gently toss to coat in oil, and then add the white wine and thyme leaves. Cover with a lid, reduce heat to medium, and leave to cook for 5 minutes.
  • When the wine has reduced, return the heat to medium-high. Add the onions to the pot and saute until soft and translucent (about 4 minutes). Add the garlic, paprika, and a pinch of salt and stir to combine. Saute for another minute.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Return the chicken thighs to the pot and pour in the chicken stock, covering the pot with a lid. Leave to simmer for 18-20 mins and the chicken is cooked through. (You can add some more stock or water to the pot if it gets too dry).
  • Serve straight away, garnished with fresh parsley.
