Crispy Garlic Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs

Chicken Ingredients:
6-8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (approx 1.5 lb)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
Cayenne pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sauce Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup dry white wine (optional)
4 cloves garlic, minced OR 1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ cup chicken broth OR chicken stock
Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel & trim off excess fat. Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, dried herbs, salt & peppers. Coat the chicken evenly with the combined seasonings.
Heat oil in a large pan or skillet over medium heat and sear chicken for 5 minutes until golden and crispy. Flip and cook for a further 2 minutes. Move chicken to the sides of the pan and add butter to the middle. Let melt, then add the garlic into the butter. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Increase heat to medium-high. Add the wine and chicken broth (or stock). Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with the end of a wooden spoon. Stir chicken around; let liquid simmer until reduced to half, about 2 minutes.
When chicken is cooked through (165 F degrees internally), remove from heat. Taste test and season with extra salt and pepper if desired.
Serve immediately with fresh chopped parsley or herbs of your choice if wanted. Great with cooked rice.
