Ingredients

Chicken: 
Cream Sauce:
Confit Potatoes: 

Directions

Cream Sauce:

Chicken: Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Season the flour and the panko with salt and pepper. Add the oregano and paprika to the panko and mix to combine. Put the flour, panko and eggs in separate bowls. Dip the chicken first in flour to coat, then in the eggs. Let the excess egg drain off and then evenly coat in the seasoned panko crumbs.

In a deep saute pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. 

Put the chicken thighs in the hot oil and cook on first side until golden brown, then turn on the other side. Cook until the internal temperature of the chicken registers 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the oil and drain on paper towels. Season lightly with salt while the chicken is still hot. 

Cream sauce: In a saucepot over medium heat, add the pancetta and render until some of the fat is released. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. 

Stir in the heavy cream and let simmer until reduced by half. Season with salt and pepper, to taste and stir in the chopped sage.

To serve: Divide the potatoes between 2 plates and top each with 2 chicken thighs. Spoon some of the cream sauce over the top and serve.

Confit Potatoes: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In an oven-proof dish, toss together the potatoes, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and salt and pepper, to taste. Pour the olive oil over top until the potatoes are covered. Cook the potatoes in the oven until tender, about 45 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the potatoes from the oil and put in a bowl.
