I saw this recipe in my 2012 Southern Living Annual Recipes Cookbook, and I knew Chicken Legs would love them. Chicken Legs is a huge mushroom fan and he loves bourbon. I couldn't go wrong.
I made these mushrooms for New Years Eve and they were incredible! These mushrooms smelled fantastic while they were cooking. I used a mixture of mushrooms for this dish. I used half "gourmet mushrooms" from Publix and half white button mushrooms. The gourmet blend has oyster, shiitake and baby bellas. Chicken Legs absolutely loved the mushrooms and has already requested them again this coming weekend.
