For Someone Who Hates Mushrooms...and Chicken
I have never liked mushrooms. I couldn't even eat pizza if there had been mushrooms on it, their flavor would taint everything around it and cream of mushroom soup made me gag. Then there is chicken, the most boring meat on the planet. It is what you eat when there is nothing else around (and of course there is a bag of it in my freezer). That said, I was watching the food network and the lady was making this Pan-Seared Chicken with Porcini-Chestnut Sauce...in other words Mushroom Chicken. For some reason I went to the store, purchased the ingredients, and made the recipe that night. Oh. My. Gosh. I think I died and went to heaven. It is so good that I have made it twice (with rice instead of orzo and pecans instead of chestnuts).
