Recipe For Chicken With Shitake Mushrooms, Sundried Tomatoes And Peas

Chicken is the most versatile of meats. You can do so much with chicken -all it needs is to be treated gently in order not to ruin the meal. I love using different flavours with the same cooking method. My Le Creuset Cocotte or Tagine are used often to ensure the chicken is cooked slowly, and retains the moisture of both the meat and the sauce. Here I have made chicken with shitake mushrooms and paired the dish with sundried tomatoes for extra zing. I have added peas for colour. I try and buy the best quality chicken I can afford. Thankfully we have a local farm where we can order chicken from.

    1. I love how meaty they are. The farmers market this weekend should have exotic mushrooms for sale, so more of this type of meal to follow.
