  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ shallot, minced about 2 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon minced thyme
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup unsalted (or low sodium) chicken stock
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh thyme leaves, garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once skillet is hot add oil.
  • Season chicken well with salt and pepper and add chicken, skin-side down to skillet.
  • Sear chicken thighs for 5 to 6 minutes or until skin has browned.
  • Flip chicken and cook for an additional 5 to 6 minutes. Remove thighs from skillet and set aside.
  • Melt butter in skillet and saute mushrooms, garlic and shallots for 3 to 4 minutes. Add thyme and continue to saute for an additional minute. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Deglaze skillet with white wine, until pan is almost dry, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Stir in mustard and stock, lower heat to medium and simmer until stock has reduced by half. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Nestle chicken thighs, skin-side up, into the mushroom sauce and place skillet into oven for about 15 minutes or until chicken cooks through.
  • Remove from heat, remove thighs from skillet and stir yogurt into sauce until fully incorporated. Adjust seasonings (salt and pepper) and whisk in a little more stock to thin sauce, if needed. Place chicken thighs back into skillet and serve.
