Preheat a large pan over medium-low heat and once hot add butter and olive oil and pan-fry chicken thighs for 3-5 minutes on one side and then 3-5 minutes on the other. Season with sea salt on both sides in the pan.
Remove the chicken from the pan and keep warm. Add chicken broth to the pan juices and scrape off any burnt bits and pieces. Add crème fraîche and stir until well combined. Once bubbling, reduce heat to a simmer and stir occasionally. Let simmer and reduce until creamy. Add lemon zest, 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice, green peppercorns and try for salt and then add chicken thighs back into the sauce.
Add to a plate and pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with roasted sweet potato and asparagus or a salad.
You HAVE to use fresh peppercorns! You cannot use dried!
