  • 1 whole chicken or 4 chicken quarters
  • 1 tsp sea salt plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper plus more to taste
  • 2 tsp ghee or you favorite cooking oil
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup bone broth or chicken broth
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk or heavy cream, if not dairy free


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. If using whole chicken, cut the chicken into 8 pieces, then sprinkle the chicken evenly with salt and pepper.
  • Heat ghee in a large oven-safe skillet over medium high heat.
  • Pan fry the chicken skin side down for 5 minutes, then flip. Cook for another 3 minutes, then remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add onion to the same skillet and cook stirring for 3 minutes, and then add garlic for 1 minute.
  • Add bone broth, dijon mustard, and thyme, and stir and scrap the bottom of the pan to deglaze.
  • Add chicken back in to the skillet with the skin side up. Transfer to the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan to set aside, then heat the skillet over medium high heat on the stovetop to simmer the sauce until thickened, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Whisk in coconut milk and simmer for another minute.
  • Turn off heat, and add chicken back to the skillet. Spoon the sauce over the chicken, then serve warm.
