  • 6 Chicken Thighs, skin on
  • 1 Shallot
  • 1 Morel Mushroom
  • 4 ozs Heavy Cream
  • 4 Ramps
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4 ozs Sherry
  • 2 tbsps Olive Oil

Dry your chicken thighs and season with salt and pepper all over. Cook the chicken thighs slowly in a cast iron pan with olive oil, skin side down. Flip once the thighs are cooked 75% through and finish cooking on the other side. In a large pan, sweat diced shallot with olive oil. Add morels (cut in half), season with salt and pepper. Make sure the mushrooms aren't crowded in the pan, you want them to have plenty of room. Add your sherry, let reduce until almost gone. Add cream, cook until just heated through. Turn off the heat and toss in sliced ramps. Plate up your chicken and morels and enjoy!
