4 servings (serving size: 2 chicken thighs, about 1/3 cup broth, and 3/4 cup rice)

This recipe is based loosely on a dish served by Chef Aitor Elizegi at Restaurante Gaminiz outside Bilbao. He uses fresh morels, but dried also work well. You can substitute fresh mushrooms, if you like.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine dried mushrooms and water in a bowl; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan, and sauté 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Add mushrooms, broth, and bay leaves. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is done. Discard bay leaves. Serve with rice.

Very good served with brown rice. Sorry; couldn't find morels but shitake worked just fine. I would definitely make this recipe again.
