For The Chicken

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

For The Sauce

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary


  • Use a paper towel to pat boneless skinless chicken thighs dry then remove excess fat. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, herbs, salt, and pepper to a large bowl and combine them. Cover the chicken evenly with the mixed spices.
  • Add 1 tbsp of olive oil into a large skillet and turn on medium-high heat. When oil is hot enough, place chicken thighs into the skillet. Fry chicken thighs in batches for about 8 minutes on each side, until golden well and no longer pink in the center. When you fry the second batch, you can add the remaining oil if needed. Transfer cooked chicken to a plate; set aside and cover to keep warm.
  • Add butter to the skillet, heat until melted, and add the mushrooms. Season with pepper and salt to taste and stir for about 3 minutes until the mushroom softens. Add the garlic and sprinkle parsley, thyme, and rosemary. Stir herbs for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Return chicken to the skillet, and season to your taste. Sprinkle a little chopped parsley to garnish and serve.



If you have fresh herbs, you can use them in your chicken thigh and mushroom recipes to make them more flavorful. Besides, basil and oregano are also good options if you don't like thyme or rosemary.
Do you want your recipe to have an even more perfect flavor? So easy! Pour in 1/3 cup dry white wine with your mushrooms. Cook until the liquid is down to half. Continue to add the chicken back into the pan. Your chicken thigh and mushroom recipes will be very delicious.
