    Picked up some shrooms the other day because they had a really good sale. I threw them in the smoker not sure what would become of them.

    Growing out of the smoker...

    Smoked for about an hour then put into the fridge.
    Next day I realized what I wanted to do. I love lemon chicken scallopini and it gets mushrooms with it so that was what I decided on.


    I mixed some flour, salt and pepper together, pounded out a few chickens breasts, sliced into strips and coated in flour mixture.

    Sauteed in a pan (med-high) with olive oil until browned. Once browned on one side I flipped and added in the mushrooms.

    As it cooked I made up a mixture of
    1/2T lemon juice
    2t butter
    1/2C heavy cream
    1/2t thyme
    salt and pepper

    Once the chicken was browned I added half a can of chicken stock, juice of one lemon, 1/2C heavy cream, brought to a boil and added 3-4 artichoke hearts, quartered, and simmered for 10 minutes

    At the same time I boiled some angel hair pasta and bacon in the oven

    The bacon, oops, should have paid better attention, guess what my dog had for dinner?

    So once I had the chicken simmered I removed it from the heat, added the cream mixture, placed pasta on a plate, added chicken, sauce and topped with (new) crumbled bacon.

    They had a great flavor.
    Only tried smoking mushrooms once before and they were stuffed and I didn't smoke them cap down for a bit so a lot of the water pooled inside of them but these worked out great, I made sure to go light on the smoke while I had them in since mushrooms act like a sponge and could easily pick up too much smoke. Only thing that would have been even better would have been to grill the lemon for a minute or so before squeezing the juice out for even more flavor.

    to prevent the water from pooling up in them when making stuffed shrooms, just make an x slash on bottom side of cap most of the way thru... water will drain.
