Helpful Tips:
  • Keep the chicken in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
  • Don't wash the chicken before you use it as cooking will kill bacteria and washing just spreads it around.
  • Cut any extra skin and fat from the chicken.
  • When possible, slice the mushrooms yourself.  Pre-sliced mushrooms lose their freshness quickly.
