One of my former coworkers posted a delicious-looking recipe for chicken breasts with mushroom sauce this morning on Facebook, and I decided to try it. Interestingly, the author advertises it as a 30-minute meal, but it took just that long to fry up the chicken, even before you start the sauce. But that's ok because I had plenty of time.
I love almost anything with mushrooms. I like cooking with them, and use them whenever I can. One of the places we ate in Mendocino had a special--hand picked local mushrooms, found by a renowned mushroom forager (seriously), as a side dish. I was all over that. The should have used less salt.
Anyway, I made this recipe and it turned out great. The only thing I tweaked was to add some garlic. There is no garlic in the recipe, which must be an oversight. Oh, and I used about half the butter recommended, surmising that the last two tablespoons of butter were really two cloves of garlic.
When I was at the store, I bought a hunk of gorgonzola cheese for I'm not sure what for, but I'm sure I'll find something to do with it.
Here is a link to the chicken recipe if your are interested:
Oh, and I received an airmail letter from India, sent by saintgeorge, which was a real treat!
