    Heat a 14-inch heavy bottomed skillet on high and coat with canola oil.

    Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.

    Working in batches, if needed, sear chicken skin side down for 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Flip and cook for another 2 minutes.

    Remove chicken from skillet, reserving all of the fat in the pan.

    Add onion, season with salt and sweat until translucent and softened, a minute or two.

    Add the garlic and cook for a minute.

    Add baguette cubes, reserved potatoes, and carrots, and season with salt and pepper.

    Toss all in the fat and an additional glug of oil if needed.

    Arrange thighs on top and place in oven for 15 minutes or thighs reach 160 degrees F.
