    Requires soaking 2 hours. Can substitute dried morels or trompettes des morts mushrooms for dried cèpes mushrooms.

    More effort than reward. Sort of like chicken breasts poached in mushrooms and liquid. served it over jasmine rice, with steamed buttered broccoli. The rice was essential to soak up all of the juice.

    I was worried that the chicken in this recipe would taste bland and "steamed" and so decided at the last minute to saute the breasts separately (rather than use the cooking method specified in the recipe) and serve them with the recipe's sauce. It turned out that the sauce is so rich and flavorful that it probably wouldn't have mattered if the chicken had tasted like cardboard. I used fresh cremini and dried porcini. Sauce is earthy, creamy, umami-rich, and has a bit of sweetness from the port and shallots. I'll try the recipe's technique of cooking the chicken next time since it's much quicker and easier than sauteeing it separately.

    My copy of The Silver Palate Cookbook (print and kindle version) does not contain this recipe so I had to find it on the internet. Was looking for an easy mid-week hands-off chicken recipe. This one worked a treat. Mushrooms are delicious although I only soaked mine for about 30 minutes in the end. Would definitely make again but will remove foil before the end of cooking time so chicken can take on some colour.
