Made in 30 Minutes in one skillet, this Creamy Garlic Chicken really packs a big flavor punch!


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed or coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour

  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley to garnish


  1. In a small bowl mix together the salt, pepper and garlic powder. Sprinkle the mixture on the chicken thighs.
