Chicken Thighs in Creamy Spinach Sauce

Recipe makes 6 servings


1 Tbsp olive oil
24 oz (690g) chicken thighs, bone-in, skin on – approximately 4 pieces
1 cup cream cheese
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
2 cups frozen spinach
1 cup parmesan
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper


Grease a large frying pan with olive oil and heat up over medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs, skin-side down, and season with salt and pepper. Optionally, add a pinch of smoked paprika or cayenne. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover with a lid. Continue to cook for another 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked. Remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside.

Now, add cream cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream to the same pan. Mix all well and cook for 2-3 minutes or until thoroughly combined. Add frozen spinach and give it a good stir. Cook until thawed, stirring constantly.

Add parmesan and diced tomatoes. Mix well again and continue to cook for a couple of minutes more.

Add the chicken back to the pan and coat with the sauce. Serve immediately.
