  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. garlic salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter divided
  • 2 c. frozen chopped spinach
  • c. sun dried tomatoes
  • 1 lb. baby red potatoes quartered

For the sauce:

  • ¼ c. 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ tsp. dried parsley or 1 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ tsp.garlic salt
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • ½ c. half and half or heavy cream
  • c. freshly grated Parmesan

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Season chicken thighs with paprika, garlic salt, and pepper.

      In a large skillet set over medium-high heat melt the butter. Add the chicken, skin-side down, and cook both sides until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.

        Add in the spinach and cook until heated, about 2 minutes and reduce heat to simmer.

          For the sauce, melt butter in a sauce pan and add the garlic. Cook about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the flour and cook for about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, parsley, salt and pepper. Allow the sauce to cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes, whisk in the half and half and parmesan. Cook until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat.

            Place the potatoes around the chicken in the skillet, then top with sun-dried tomatoes. Pour the sauce over top.

              Place skillet in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
