Chicken Maryland with a creamy #powerofmushrooms sauce

The Chicken Maryland is my favourite piece of a chook

I’m definitely a thigh man when it comes to chook. Chicken breasts do nothing for me. Chook breasts are dry and stringy whereas the dark meat of the thigh is tender, moist and luxurious. The Maryland also has the drumstick and like any kid, meat on a stick is a good thing. I’ll also reveal (again) I love the cloaca. When roasted or deep fried, the fatty crispy goodness is to die for. 

I bet it comes as no surprise that I like a creamy buttery sauce with my chicken.
