Roasted garlic, onions, white wine, and cream come together with chicken thighs (or breasts) to make this rich, creamy garlic chicken dinner. Serve this with rice or egg noodles for an easy meal the family will love.



6 chicken thighs, trimmed

1 onion, diced

1 tsp olive oil

1 bulb of garlic, roasted (see How To Roast Garlic)

1/2 cup white wine

5 sprigs fresh thyme

3/4 cups chicken broth

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1 Tbsp cornstarch + 1 Tbsp cold water


  1. Warm the skillet/pan:  Warm the pan and add olive oil
  2. Brown the chicken: Brown the chicken over medium high heat.  About 3-4 minutes on each side.
  3. Remove chicken: Remove the chicken and set aside.
  4. Add Onions & Garlic:  Lower heat to medium.  Add the onions and garlic to the skillet, stirring frequently and smashing the garlic.
  5. Deglaze the pan:  Pour in white wine and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
