Garlic Thyme Chicken Thighs
2 tablespoons avocado oil
4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
20 cloves garlic, separated and peeled, about two full heads
2 tablespoons gluten free multi-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
10 sprigs fresh thyme leaves, leaves removed and stems discarded
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Over medium high heat, in a cast iron skillet, heat the avocado oil .
Season the chicken thighs generously with salt and pepper.
Cook the chicken thighs skin side down on medium-high heat until well browned, for about 5 minutes, then flip the chicken thighs skin side up and cook for another 3 minutes. Remove the chicken thighs to a plate.
Reduce the heat to medium, add the garlic to the same skillet, and cook, occasionally turning, until garlic starts to brown, 3 or 4 minutes.
Return the chicken to the cast iron skillet cover with a lid (if the skillet has one) or aluminum foil, and place in oven for 15 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and put it on a stove top. Have caution though removing the cast iron skillet, as the pan will be very hot.
Remove the chicken thighs, garlic, and all but 2 tablespoons of oil from the pan.
Over medium heat, whisk in the 2 tablespoons of gluten-free flour with the oil in the pan.
Next, gradually whisk in the chicken broth and fresh thyme leaves for 1 or 2 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
Remove the pan from the heat, and season the sauce with salt and pepper.
Add the roasted garlic and chicken thighs back to the pan. Serve with your favorite side dish, a salad, and enjoy.
