It was a dark and stormy night, a frigid 65 degrees! Freezing Belizeans needed something warm and delicious in their bellies
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to make this creamy chicken with mushroom dish.
You can use whatever part of chicken you want, but it’s best if it has skin and bones. I got the package called “chicken cuts”. It had some strange looking “cuts” of chicken, for example, I swore one piece looked like a thigh, yet it had an appendage of rib bones(?). But anyway, try to cut them about the same size, dry the chicken off, and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Then sprinkle a little flour on it.
Now brown the chicken in olive oil. You may have to do more than one batch to avoid overcrowding of the pan.
While the chicken is browning, wash the mushrooms. Yes, I said WASH. I know the usually say “don’t put them in water” blah blah blah, just “wipe them”
See that dirt? That’s why I wash them. I don’t care if they get “rubbery”, I don’t want to eat soil.
Take the browned chicken out, and set aside. It doesn’t matter if it’s still raw with bleeding bone-ends, as long as the skin is nice and browned. Don’t worry, we will put them back in the pot shortly.
Now add a little butter to the pot and throw in some onions with salt and pepper. Cook them until they start to turn clear.
Now, add the shrooms.
Cook them till they’re nice and brown.
Now, we’re gonna add white wine.
Maybe 1/3 cup? Depends how you feel…
Cook until the wine reduces and gets thicker, then add a spoonful of flour.
Then stir it all around until it’s mixed in good.
Add about 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, and put the chicken pieces back in the pot.
Now cover and cook for about 20 minutes. (I didn’t really need to show this step, but I just wanted to show off my awesome new green dutch oven, love it!)
Now stir in maybe 1/4 cup of heavy cream
and sprinkle some parsley on top, because it looked a bit boring and all brown.
Serve with crusty french bread, or rice, or mashed potato, or pasta. In fact, this would probably even taste good on top of torn up pieces of cardboard, it’s SO good. MAKE IT!!
