  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chicken thighs and fry for 12 mins, turning halfway, until golden and crisp on both sides. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat the butter in the pan, then add the onion and cook for 5-8 mins until soft. Stir through the garlic and fry for a further minute.
  3. Add the mushrooms and fry for 5 mins until golden and beginning to crisp at the edges. Season with pepper and pour over the white wine, if using. Bring to the boil and cook for 30 secs to reduce.
  4. Stir through the stock and linguine. Return the chicken and any resting juices to the pan, then cover with a lid and simmer gently for 15 mins until the pasta is cooked and the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Add the cream and half the parsley to the pasta and toss well to coat. Cook for 1 min to heat through, then divide between 4 plates, top with the chicken thighs and scatter with the remaining parsley.
