Preheat the oven to 200°C
Season the chicken thigh fillets with salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side, until they have a golden-brown crust. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
In the same pan, add the halved baby potatoes and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they start to turn golden.
While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the garlic cream sauce. In a bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, grated Parmesan cheese, crushed garlic, dried thyme, red chili flakes (if using), salt, and pepper.
Add the fresh spinach to the frying pan with the potatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes, until they start to wilt.
Pour the garlic cream sauce over the spinach and potatoes. Stir gently to combine.
Place the chicken thigh fillets back into the pan, making sure they are partially submerged in the sauce. Add the fresh thyme sprigs.
Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes are tender.
