  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Heat the oil in an oven-safe pan over medium high heat and sear the chicken thighs on both sides so they’re browned. They don’t have to be cooked through because they’ll finish in the oven.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  4. Add the garlic, onion, paprika and carrot to the pan that you cooked the chicken in and sautee until the veggies are softened.
  5. Add in the pumpkin, broth, salt and pepper to the veggies and stir to combine.
  6. Nestle the chicken thighs in the sauce and pour any juices that have accumulated into the sauce pot.
  7. Place the pot in the oven, uncovered, and bake for 35 – 40 minutes until the chicken is fork tender.
  8. Once cooked, remove the chicken and put on a serving platter.
  9. Add the sour cream to the sauce in the pot and stir to combine.
  10. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve with noodles, potatoes or dumplings.
