DIRECTIONS

  • In a small saucepan, bring broth to a boil; pour over the wild mushrooms in a small bowl and let stand for about 2 hours.
  • Thinly slice cleaned mushroom caps, discarding stems.
  • In a skillet over medium to medium-to-low heat, melt butter and gently saute shallots or onion/garlic mixture for about 5 minutes (do not brown).
  • Drain liquid from wild mushrooms and reserve.
  • Finely chop the wild mushrooms and add them and the fresh mushrooms to the skillet with the shallots (or onion/garlic mixture) and saute over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 7- 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add the reserved mushroom liquid, Port, and cream to the skillet and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  • Pour mushroom mixture into a shallow baking dish and arrange chicken breast halves in a single layer on top of the mushrooms.
  • Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in the middle level of the oven for about 25- 30 minutes, until chicken is done.
