  • 8 chicken thighs skin on and bone in
  • olive oil/butter for frying
  • 3 garlic cloves peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 cup white wine
  • large handful mixed fresh herbs chopped (I used sage, parsley, thyme and rosemary)
  • ½ cup heavy/whipping cream
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
  • In a large, oven-proof frying pan, melt the butter/heat the oil and fry the chicken until golden brown all over.
  • Remove from the pan then add the garlic and allow to fry for a few seconds then pour in the wine, herbs and cream.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan then season to taste and place in the oven.
  • Allow to bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through but still juicy.
  • Serve with rice/bread to mop up the juices.
