Herbed Chicken and Mushrooms

Only about ten minutes of prep!



  • 6 bone-in, skin on chicken thighs
  • 1 lb mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 Tbsp ghee, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put a layer of mushrooms on the bottom of a baking dish. Set chicken aside and combine all other ingredients in a bowl. Place chicken over the mushroom and rub ghee and garlic mixture over the top. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until chicken registers at 165 degrees. If you would like a crispier skin, broil for a few minutes at the end.

    1. I think that it would taste good with any kind of chicken. Personally, I would try boneless thighs first since the fat is actually good for you and will keep you more satisfied in terms of hunger. If you like skin, it’s so nice and crispy and wonderful, so you could try to debone the chicken before cooking (I’m spoiled and my husband does this for me if I request it). It also keeps the chicken moist. If you do white meat with no skin, you run the risk of having a more dry end result. Of course, if you cook it carefully and use a thermometer, you could have a good non dry breast meat as well. You cannot go “wrong” with changing up the cut of meat, so do whatever works best for your own personal taste.


      1. I feel stupid for saying I didn’t know you could buy boneless thighs. I’m new to paleo, and I’m not a very good cook except for kid-friendly things like mac & cheese and anything frozen. Ha! Thanks for the advice. I can’t wait to try this recipe!


  1. Okay, so I haven’t made *this* recipe yet, but I did use some boneless skinless chicken thighs tonight. Oh. My. Gosh. I have been missing out!! Thank you for the inspiration!! I’m totally making this recipe tomorrow, even though my kids hate mushrooms. Ha!!

    1. I’m so glad that you’re feeling inspired!!! You’ll have to let me know what everyone thinks of this one. My son loves this recipe as well even though he would normally pass up everything with mushrooms!
