Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Season both sides of chicken thighs with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
Heat vegetable oil on medium-high heat in oven-proof skillet.
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.)
Transfer to plate.
In the same skillet, fry garlic and onions in reserved chicken juices for about 1 minute.
Add chopped bacon and fry until begins to crisp, about 5 minutes.
Add mushrooms, cook until soften, about 5 minutes.
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.
