Skillet Chicken Thighs with Creamy Tomato Basil Spinach Sauce – great idea for a quick weeknight meal!    Boneless skinless chicken thighs are seared to perfection and served in a creamy tomato basil sauce with spinach, sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese.   Easy dinner that a whole family will love!

As I’ve been shopping at my local grocery store, I realized that I hardly have any recipes with boneless skinless chicken thighs.  Instead, I do have lots of recipes with bone-in skin-on chicken thighs.  I decided to fix that small problem immediately, so I bought them right away and made these delicious skillet chicken thighs the next day. So glad I did! It’s such a great cut of chicken meat and it cooks so quickly, this chicken dish took me only 30 minutes to make.  Everything is cooked in a skillet on the stove top – no extra pans, just one skillet.   So easy to make, minimal clean-up!

Ingredients


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1.5 lb chicken thighs , boneless skinless
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 oz fresh spinach
  • 4 leaves fresh basil (or use 1/4 teaspoon dried basil)
  • For serving:
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese , grated


Instructions

  1. How to cook boneless skinless chicken thighs in a skillet:
  2. In a large skillet heat olive oil on medium heat.  Season boneless skinless chicken thighs with salt and pepper.  Add them top side down to the hot skillet.  Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, until the top side is nicely seared.  
  3. Flip over to the other side and sear for 5 more minutes on medium heat.
  4. Remove the chicken from the skillet to a plate.
  5. How to make creamy tomato basil sauce:
  6. To the same, now empty skillet, add tomato sauce, minced garlic, heavy cream.  Bring to boil and stir. 
  7. Reduce heat to low simmer.  Add fresh spinach and fresh basil.  Stir until spinach wilts and reduces in volume.  
  8. Taste the sauce and add more salt and pepper, if needed.
  9. Add back cooked boneless skinless chicken thighs, increase heat to medium.  Reheat the chicken thighs in the skillet with the sauce and cook until the chicken is completely cooked through and no longer pink in the center.  
  10. To serve, spoon the sauce over the boneless skinless chicken thighs and top with grated Parmesan cheese.
