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).


  1. I like your take on Pan-Seared Chicken with Porcini-Chestnut Sauce..

    Or Mushroom Chicken! LOL!!!!!

    Oh but best of all you enjoyed this recipe - that's great. I absolutely love cooking and baking and the best part for me is discovering new ways to cook things!

    Enjoy your Mushroom Chicken!! :-)

    Take care

  2. Hopefully you don't break out in hives, as being allergic to something is often why one can't stand to eat it.

  3. I'm the opposite--I LOVE me some mushrooms. Glad you do too now!
