Ingredients
  1. 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  2. 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  3. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  4. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  5. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1 cup chicken broth
  7. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  8. 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  9. Juice of 1 lemon
  10. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  11. 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Season chicken thighs with paprika, salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; drain excess fat and set aside.
  4. Melt remaining tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, heavy cream, Parmesan, lemon juice and thyme.
  5. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, stir in spinach, and simmer until the spinach has wilted and the sauce has slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet.
  6. Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 175 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.
  7. Serve immediately.
