Season the chicken on both sides with the salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.
Heat 1 tablespoon (30 grams) butter in a large skillet or saute pan, over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear for 5 to 7 minutes per side, without moving, until browned and cooked through.
Remove the chicken from the pan, cover with foil and set aside.
Add the remaining tablespoon (30 grams) butter to the pan. Add the sliced garlic. Saute for 2-3 minutes, stirring often, until the garlic is fragrant and starting to brown.
Add the broth and wine to the pan. Use a wooden spoon to scrape any browned bits from the bottom (this is called de-glazing).
Place the bay leaf into the pan and submerge. Bring the liquid to a gentle boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 8-12 minutes, until the volume is reduced by half.
Add the cream to the pan. Heat for just a few minutes (do not boil).
Remove the bay leaf and add the chicken back to the pan. Spoon the sauce over the chicken.
Serving size: 2 chicken thighs with sauce, or 1/4 entire recipe
