I LOVE RICARDO! Let’s be honest, the buy is a machine… This feast is a retake on one of his recipe that I am in love with. I have ‘’pimped it’’ my way because everything is better with more mushrooms, rum and beer no?


  •  1 cup chicken broth
  • 30g dried morels
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 900g chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 pack oyster mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 pack white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 cup Blonde de Chambly beer by Unibroue
  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch diluted in 3 teaspoons cold water
  • 1/2 cup 15% country-style cream
  • 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Leaves from 2 fresh thyme sprigs
  • Egg noodles


  • Remove the morels from their packaging and rince delicately under water to clean them. Bring the chicken broth to a boil then remove from heat. Add the morels in the broth and leave for 30 minutes to rehydrate them.
  • In a big sauce pan, melt the butter at medium-high heat. Seeat the chicken on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Season with salt and pepper. Remove chicken then set aside.
  • Add the onion, garlic, fresh mushrooms then cook for 3 minutes. Deglaze with the rum and scrape the bottom to get all those flavors! Add the chicken back.
  • Add the broth with morels, beer, cornstarch mix, cream, Dijon mustard and the thyme leaves. Season with salt and pepper then stir well.
  • Lower heat slightly, cover then simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Remove lid, crank heat to mid-high and bring to a boil. Simmer at big boil for 15 minutes, stir delicately. Verify the chicken doneness before removing pan from heat.
  • Serve on egg noodles with green beans, sweet peas or snow peas!

My personal notes

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$Château Montauriol Tradition

Medium-bodied wine with seducing pepper notes, this south-west France wine elaborated with the grape variety called ''négrette'' offers a lot for a good price.

+- 30$Château De Chamirey Mercurey 2012

When you see mercurey from the Chamirey castle, jump on the occasion. It's always delicious and the 2012 vintage is particularly open, accessible and elegant.

Porter au Pu Er, La Chasse-Pinte

Cream, mushroom, beer and rum will pair wonderfully with this infused tea Porter. The beer will bring an earthy and herbaceous side and aromas of chocolate and roasting. The pairing with the mushrooms will be made quite naturally.
