Butter Chicken thighs Sea salt Golden potatoes Bacon Medium onion Heavy whipping cream Dry thyme Ground pepper Sharp cheddar cheese Optional garnish

Prep the chicken (see above), preheat the oven and grease the baking dish and set it aside.

Step 1

Cook potatoes in a pot of boiling salted water and cook for 5 minutes before draining. Set aside and let them cool down for a bit.

Step 2

Heat a skillet and sauté bacon for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. I cook with bacon grease but if you wish, remove the bacon grease, by blotting with a paper towel, or carefully tilting the pan allowing the grease to drip into a bowl. Keep it for cooking later, it adds great flavor!

Step 3

Add whipping cream, pepper, thyme, and salt into the skillet and bring to a gentle boil. Add half of the cheese and allow it to melt in the sauce while simmering on low heat.

Step 4

Assemble the casserole by layering chicken on the bottom and adding potatoes on top. Pour the cheese sauce over potato and sprinkle 1/2 cup of shredded cheese over top.

Step 5

Place casserole dish in the oven and bake until golden and bubbly and the potatoes and chicken are cooked through. This should be about 30 minutes, but keep an eye on it as you know your oven best!

Step 6

Add any of the above-mentioned optional garnishes for a pop of color and added vibrancy from fresh herbs!
