  • Carbs per serving:
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 chicken thigh
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 0.25 tsp black pepper
  • 3 clove(s) garlic
  • 100 ml chicken stock
  • 8 bacon
  • 1 lemon
  • 100 ml double cream
  • 2 spring onion

Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Generously season chicken thighs with salt and pepper, make sure to season under the skin too. Add chicken thighs skin side down to the hot skillet. Cook for about 6 minutes, covered, skin side down, without flipping, checking occasionally, until the skin side is very well browned.

Remove chicken from the skillet.

Add minced garlic and a small amount of chicken stock to deglaze the pan and cook the garlic for about a minute. Add the remaining chicken stock. Add half the bacon (cooked, fat should be drained off, and chopped into small chunks).

Add chicken back to the pan, on top of bacon and in the chicken broth. Arrange 5 thin lemon slices around chicken thighs - and cook, simmering, covered, for about 20 minutes, until chicken is done and is no longer pink in the centre.

After chicken is cooked, remove it from the skillet. Remove lemon slices from the skillet, it's very important that you remove them now, do not leave them in for the sauce otherwise it will be too sour. Add most of the cream to the skillet. Bring to boil and mix everything well, scraping from the bottom. Immediately reduce to simmer, add chicken thighs back to the skillet and reheat.

To serve, spoon some of the sauce over the chicken thighs, and sprinkle with remaining chopped bacon and chopped green onions.
