  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400˚F. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat.

    While the skillet is heating up, generously sprinkle the salt, pepper, and paprika over both sides of the chicken thighs.

    Turn down the heat to medium and add the remaining two tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 2 minutes until fragrant, stirring frequently. 

  • Step 5

    Add the chardonnay, cream, and parmesan. Whisk the mixture until creamy and begins to bubble. Add the chicken back into the skillet and transfer it to the oven. Cook for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped basil or full basil leaves and enjoy!
