With a humungous serving of veggies accompanying the succulent chicken thighs, you will be full to your heart’s content. Grilling the chicken pieces give them a nice color and crunch that goes very well with the flavorful gravy.

In short, it is a must try recipe for all!

Instructions

Clean the chicken pieces and pat dry them. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, creole seasoning, and a half tablespoon of olive oil to the chicken pieces and rub the spices well to coat the chicken all over.

Grill the chicken thighs on a hot griller for 4 to 5 minutes on all sides or until nicely brown on the outside. Remove the chicken on a separate plate. Add the remaining olive in the same grilling pan and add the onion, celery, garlic, thyme, bay leaf, mushroom and sauté them until the vegetables are a little soft.

Tips

Do not over cook the chicken thighs as it will toughen the chicken flesh.

Add the zucchini in the end to maintain the integrity of the vegetable and to not turn it limply.
