Chicken with Smoked Chanterelles+

? points – changed recipe

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half,  and 3/4 cup mushroom mixture)

I made this on the stove top without smoking the chanterelles.  Original recipe had a scalloped potato side that is too much work and not that good.


2 cups cedar wood chips
6 thyme sprigs
3 rosemary sprigs
1 pound chanterelle mushrooms, sliced lengthwise
1 center-cut bacon slice, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups chopped kale
1/4 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Prepare grill for indirect grilling, heating one side to high and leaving one side with no heat. Pierce bottom of a disposable aluminum foil pan several times. Place pan on heated side of grill; add wood chips, thyme sprigs, and rosemary sprigs to pan. When chips are smoking, place another foil pan (do not pierce) on unheated side of grill; add mushrooms. Cover and smoke 20 minutes.

Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Increase heat to medium-high. Heat butter in drippings in pan. Add mushrooms to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add kale and next 3 ingredients (through 1/8 teaspoon pepper); cook until kale is tender and liquid almost evaporates, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with bacon.

Preheat grill to high heat.

Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place chicken on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with potatoes and mushroom mixture.
