Rustic Italian Chicken Shitake Mushroom Pot

By Ally @allykitchen

Meals in bowls always seem a little bit more comforting to me than on a plate. There's just something about maybe the broth, the gravy, the au jus or whatever there is that you can sop up with crusty hot bread, cornbread, rolls. You get the idea! This rustic Italian chicken shitake mushroom pot is one of those kinds of dishes. it's got all the trappings of a dish you'd serve plated, but put it in a bowl, and you'll have an entirely different experience!

That's what food's about. The experience. And, sometimes it's small things that you swap out, change, tweak and change that make an entirely new experience. For instance, say you're having spaghetti and meatballs. You serve them inside at the dining room table. Yeah, good, but there's something different about those same spaghetti and meatballs if you take them outdoors, throw a tablecloth on the table, light some candles, and dine al fresco as the sun is setting.

In the case of this recipe just swapping a plate for a shallow bowl creates a unique visual and palate sensation. The next time I do this recipe, I'm going to make garlic mashed potatoes and dollop a big scoop in the bowl, then cover it with the broth, chicken and mushrooms. And, if you want to throw in a few petite green peas, have at it! OMG, imagine the ecstasy!! xoxoxo ~ally
