Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt and pepper. Using 4 slices of bacon create a lattice weave and then place one chicken thigh in center of bacon weave and fold ends until the thigh is wrapped -- you may need to secure with toothpicks. Repeat with remaining bacon and chicken.

Step 3

Heat an cast-iron skillet over medium high heat and then place the wrapped chicken thighs, red onion and garlic in skillet and cook for 5 minutes, turning once or until bacon starts to crisp and vegetables are tender. In a small cup or bowl mix together the molasses and mustard and brush mixture over the chicken.

Step 4

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove chicken, onion and garlic from skillet; reserving 1/4 cup of drippings in the skillet. Heat skillet over medium heat and whisk in the flour and cook for one minute. Remove from heat and gradually whisk in the cream and then stir in the thyme. Return chicken and vegetables to skillet.

Awesome chicken! Because of non-availability of the the b/s chicken thighs here right now, I used bone in and forgot to remove the skin, and adjusted the cooking time. And subbed the molasses with maple syrup. We both agreed that this is one of the best chicken recipes for our tastes! Will certainly be made again! Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe Ellie!
