I LOVE mushrooms, but my family does not. Can anyone else relate? Just to be nice I usually avoid dinner recipes with mushrooms, but every now and then I just get a craving and decide to make something with them anyway … thinking they can just pick them out if it’s really that much of a problem. It’s certainly not hard to do if they aren’t cut too small.
But when I recently made this Chicken & Wild Mushroom Skillet, I decided that while they could pick them out, I certainly wouldn’t suggest it or even say a word about the dreaded mushrooms that suddenly appeared in our dinner. And guess what happened? (I bet you can guess where I am going with this, haha.) No one said a word, me included, and just ate their entire serving as is! I couldn’t believe it. Maybe it was the sauce, maybe it was because they were “wild” mushrooms instead of standard, maybe it was the alignment of the stars – who knows, but I certainly didn’t start asking any questions. I hope your family enjoys this one as much as mine did!
Oh, and I included the polenta recipe below that was fabulous paired with this (as pictured). Just add a simple green salad on the side, and your healthy dinner is done!
