- 8 Gerber's CARE Certified chicken thighs
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 cups each sliced button and cremini mushrooms
- 1 cup portabella mushrooms, sliced

- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 2 tsp. unsalted butter
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 4 cups chicken stock
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Season the chicken thighs on both sides with salt and pepper. Set aside.
