Recipe Book Monday: Chicken with Wild Mushrooms

Week 1
Ina Garten
Barefoot Contessa

Recipe Book Monday has begun! Every Monday I am picking out random recipes from my huge collection of cookbooks that I've never read yet. I started off with Ina Garten (one of my personal favorite chefs) and randomly chose a page number from her book Foolproof. Boy, am I lucky! I ended up with Ina Garten's Chicken with Wild mushrooms recipe. If you could only see my husband's face when the page opened!

Ina Garten's recipe calls for just the chicken in a gravy like sauce (with mushrooms, garlic, thyme) - so I decided to add a little bedding of pasta (gemelli in this case). This dish was incredibly flavorful, and my favorite part was the whole garlic cloves. When they are oven roasted in a broth they come out with a deep, sweet garlicky taste. I LOVE them like this! Another great thing about this recipe is that it uses most ingredients that you already have at home - who doesn't love that?! 
Below are some pictures as the meal was coming along, and also some reviews of what we thought.
