Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Step 2

Season both sides of chicken thighs with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.

Step 3

Heat vegetable oil on medium-high heat in oven-proof skillet.

Step 4

Pan sear each side of the chicken for 1-2 minutes until nicely brown and place skillet in oven. (Alternatively, if you don't have an oven-proof skillet, transfer chicken thighs to a foil-lined baking sheet.)

Step 5

Transfer to plate.

Step 6

In the same skillet, fry garlic and onions in reserved chicken juices for about 1 minute.

Step 7

Add chopped bacon and fry until begins to crisp, about 5 minutes.

Step 8

Add mushrooms, cook until soften, about 5 minutes.

Step 9

Add heavy cream, 1/8 teaspoon sea salt, pepper, chicken broth, Parmesan cheese, and fresh thyme. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and simmer for 5 minutes until sauce begins to reduce. If you prefer a thicker sauce, add corn starch.
