Ingredients
  

Chicken Thighs

  • 1.5 lb chicken thighs boneless, skinless
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp parsley chopped, fresh

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

  • 4 oz roasted red peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350F. At the same time, preheat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Season the thighs with salt and pepper.
  • Add the coconut oil to the preheated skillet. Once the oil has melted, place the chicken thighs into the skillet. Sear for 5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is browned.
  • Puree the roasted red peppers, garlic, and olive oil in a blender. Pour the heavy cream into the blended peppers, then blend until thoroughly mixed.
  • Remove the skillet from the stove, then pour the sauce over the top of the thighs. Flip them over to ensure that both sides are coated.
  • Crumble the goat cheese over the top of the sauced chicken. Transfer the skillet to the oven then bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.
