  3. Place chicken in skillet skin side down and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until skin has turned golden brown. Remove chicken, set aside and drain any excess liquid.
  4. Lower heat to medium, add in 1 tbsp ghee and garlic cloves to skillet. Saute for about 5 minutes or until garlic starts to slightly turn brown.
  5. Stir in chicken broth, coconut cream, paprika, thyme leaves and lemon juice. Make sure to really combine chicken broth and coconut cream. Bring to a boil and then lower heat to low.
  6. Add chicken back in skin side up and simmer for 15-20 minutes uncovered or until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thicken. Taste sauce to see if you need additional kosher salt and black pepper.
