Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
First, cook the Bacon (10 slices). Add it to a cold, large skillet with deep sides and then heat it up over medium high heat. Let it cook completely and render out the gorgeous liquid gold fat until it is crispy.
step 1 First, cook the Bacon (10 slices). Add it to a cold, large skillet with deep sides and then heat it up over medium high heat. Let it cook completely and render out the gorgeous liquid gold fat until it is crispy.
step 2
While the bacon cooks, season the Bone-in, Skin-on Chicken Thighs (8) generously with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Then remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and drain most of the fat out. Preferably, drain it into a heat proof container and save it to cook with later.
step 3
Get the pan back on the heat and add 4 of the chicken thighs with the skin side down so that the pan doesn't get overcrowded. Brown them for 5 minutes or so, until they release easily and cook them for another 5 minutes on the other side. Transfer them to a plate and repeat with the remaining 4 chicken thighs.

step 4
Put the other chicken thighs back into the pan and transfer the pan to the oven to roast all of them for 15 minutes in order to cook them through. To be extra safe, you can use a thermometer to make sure they get to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (71 degrees C) in the very center.
step 5
Once they are cooked, remove them again to a plate and set them aside. Put the pan back on the stove over medium high heat and add the Cremini Mushrooms (4 1/2 cups).
step 6
Let them start to soften and brown for 3-4 minutes, then add the Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil (1 jar), and Garlic (2 cloves). Let them cook for just 30 seconds or so. While that cooks, season it all with the Ground Turmeric (as needed), Paprika (as needed), and Saffron Threads (1 pinch). Then pour in the Coconut Milk (2 cups) and add the bacon back to the pan, along with the Fresh Rosemary (3 sprigs).

step 7
Let the sauce simmer for about 3 minutes to let the flavors marry, stirring occasionally. It also will reduce and thicken a little. Finally, nestle the chicken back into the sauce and let it all cook together for another couple of minutes. Then just serve immediately with some kind of grain like brown rice or couscous and some leafy greens! Enjoy!!
