Mushrooms are great for you and they are full of vitamins. I love them and I cook with mushrooms a lot. They’re very versatile and are perfect for stuffing. Portobello Mushrooms are one of the most commonly consumed mushrooms in the world and are a source of B vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and copper.

Should I wash mushrooms to clean? Do no rinse mushrooms caps or stems with water! Mushrooms are like sponges and will absorb liquid quickly. Instead, just use a damp paper towel to remove excess dirt.

As always, I try to use pasture raised chicken and organic veggies when possible. A pasture raised chicken is a bird raised in a natural environment, allowed to roam freely, and fed on a varied diet. Chickens raised on a pasture have access to fresh air, sunshine, and open fields. Research has shown that pasture-raised chickens have higher levels of beneficial nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and beta-carotene than conventionally raised chickens.

Chicken Stuffed Mushrooms appetizer tastes best served hot and will disappear as soon as it hits the table.
