A deliciously simple and very typically Tuscan chicken casserole. Serve with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable and more white wine.


  • 30 g (1 oz) dried porcini
  • about 300 ml (


Wash and pick over the mushrooms carefully. Cover with half the stock and leave to soak for about 15 minutes.

Heat one-third of the butter with the oil in a flameproof casserole. Add the chicken pieces and brown them all over. Add the wine and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes to evaporate the alcohol, then add the tomatoes. Stir in the rest of the stock and the mushrooms.
