Melt half of the the ghee / oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally to seal on all sides.

Add the garlic and closed cup mushrooms and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the chicken, soaked porcini (including water), stock and bay leaf. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Check the sauce after 10 minutes. Add a drop more water if required.


Store any leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 days or freeze on same day.

Serving suggestion: Serve with steamed rice or new potatoes and greens of your choice.
