Chicken with white wine and mushrooms, tomato sauce – pollo ai funghi

A very easy recipe and tasted pretty good. Large amount of mushrooms shrunk down fine. From Claudia Roden Italian Cooking



  • 4 boned and skinned chicken thighs
  • 15g butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 500g mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • A sprig of marjoram or thyme
  • 120ml dry white wine
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Sauté the chicken pieces briefly in a mixture of butter and oil, turning them to brown them lightly all over. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and the sprig of marjoram or thyme, pour in the wine and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 25 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.
