  • 8 pieces chicken I used a mixture of drumsticks and thighs
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 crimini mushrooms quartered
  • 5 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup half and half


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Season liberally with salt and pepper.
  • Heat olive oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Cook chicken just until browned. Transfer to a plate. In the same pan that you cooked the chicken in, add in the mushrooms cook 3 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan, sprinkle garlic and 1/4 cup of chives over the top. Pour in chicken broth. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and bake the chicken for additional 10 - 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from oven. Transfer chicken to a serving platter and cover to keep warm. Place dutch oven back on the stove and turn heat to medium. Bring to a boil. Stir 1 tablespoon of hot pan drippings into the half and half to temper it. Reduce heat and slowly whisk tempered half in half into sauce. Cook 3 – 5 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly. Stir in remaining chives. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
