2 to 3 pounds chicken thighs (8 pieces), with skin on (recommended)
3 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a large freezer bag. Add chicken pieces, and shake until well coated.
Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to casserole dish.
Add onion to same skillet, reduce heat to medium, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in sour cream and broth until heated through.
