There are several types of wild mushrooms in the supermarkets. Shiitaki have good flavor. Portobello or oyster mushrooms can also be used for this dinner. Or, white button mushrooms with a few dried wild mushrooms, such as porcini or morels, added for flavor is another alternative.
Quick side: Microwaveable brown rice helps create a 4-minute side dish.
Nutrition: This meal contains 565 calories per serving with 25 percent of calories from fat.
Buy: Look for chicken breasts that are on the bone, with the wings and skin removed.
Fred Tasker’s wine suggestion: The savoriness of wild mushrooms and brown rice are nicely matched by the savoriness of a wood aged sauvignon blanc, often called fume blanc.
To buy: 2 8-ounce chicken breasts with bones, without skin and wings; olive oil spray; 1 small bottle dried sage; 1 small bottle dried thyme; 3 ounces shiitaki mushrooms; 1 package microwaveable brown rice and half-pound broccoli florets.
Staples: olive oil, garlic, honey, orange juice, salt and black peppercorns.Linda Gassenheimer is the author of 14 cookbooks including “ The Flavors of the Florida Keys.” Go to dinnerinminutes.com.
