  • 1 lb. chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

for the sauce:


  • Mix Italian seasoning, salt and pepper together and pour onto a large plate. Coat each chicken thigh with seasoning, then place directly into a large skillet (I used my cast iron skillet).
  • Sear the chicken for 6-7 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked all the way through. You may need to add 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet. Once chicken is cooked, use kitchen tongs to remove chicken.
  • In that same skillet, combine all of the sauce ingredients and reduce heat to medium-low, stirring for a few minutes until cheese has melted. Simmer mixture for 5 minutes or so, which will allow it to thicken. Place chicken back in skillet and top it with fresh basil.
  • Enjoy!


-Freshly grated parmesan cheese will give you the best results
