Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Season chicken thighs with salt, pepper, and thyme. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, then remove and set aside. In the same skillet, add more olive oil if needed and sauté the mushrooms until they release their juices. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add the gnocchi and cook until lightly browned.
