Pollo con Funghi Selvatici

Chicken with wild mushrooms is a simple and very economical dish that creates a very lucious experience. The secret is in browning the skin then cooking the dish uncovered in a 325 oven for just an hour and a half. All the vegetables and mushrooms meld together for flavor……..then simply add the butter/flour mixture until you get just the right viscosity to the sauce.  Don’t tell anyone the secret that it was easy and inexpensive!
