Morels are the finest (and most expensive) wild mushrooms you can buy. They have a distinctive shape - like a partly unfolded umbrella — and are usually inky black. Perhaps of all the varieties of wild mushrooms you can buy dried, morels retain more of their vibrant flavour and texture when reconstituted.

A sauté is one of the most frequently used methods of cooking in the professional kitchen because a dish can be prepared to order in about half an hour. It is, in any case, an ideal method for cooking chicken. Use thighs and drumsticks for this dish as they have more flavour and are less prone to drying out.
