Ingredients

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 8

    bone-in chicken thighs, skinned (about 2½ pounds)

  • ½

    teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • 1

    tablespoon butter

  • ½

    cup chopped onion

  • 2

    teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

  • 1

    cup no-salt-added chicken stock (such as Swanson), divided

  • 4

    teaspoons flour

  • 1

    teaspoon Dijon mustard

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425°. 2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove chicken from pan; place in an 11 x 7–inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Bake at 425° for 16 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165°. Remove chicken from dish; reserve drippings. 3. Return skillet to medium-high heat. Add butter; swirl to coat. Add onion and thyme; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Combine 3 tablespoons stock and flour in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Add flour mixture, remaining stock, and reserved drippings to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, and add mustard, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, stirring with a whisk. Serve sauce with chicken.
