The inspiration for what I cook are actually very, um, well, uninspiring. Our everyday meals consist of what we have on hand, whether local/seasonal or in the pantry. I’m not really the kind of person that regularly comes up with an idea and then buys things specifically (unless I’m working on a cookbook, then that’s a whole different story).

These amazing Crispy Chicken Thighs with Morel Mushrooms & Wild Ramp Cream Sauce is the perfect example of how easily you can create an awesomely delicious dish with foods you have on hand in your fridge, no special shopping need.

We raise chickens, so of course we have chicken thighs in our freezer.. and since it’s spring our fridge has Morel Mushrooms and Ramps from our foraging over the weekend.

 

That’s a beautiful cluster of morel mushrooms, don’t you think?? #morels #morelmushrooms #foraging #wildedible

We all should have cream or at least coconut milk in our kitchen’s at all time, right??!  Oh, yes a little cheese and butter, too. Well, there you go. That’s what I had to work with and I made dinner. Easy as that.

I’m super swamped so I’m out of creative, funny or witty things to say (with cookbook #2 wrapping up this month) so I’ll get right to the recipe 🙂

The first thing you’re going to need is to get those chicken thighs cooking – I used my Cast Iron Crispy Chicken Recipe – we have them often. You could also try  Cracklin’ Chicken by Nom Nom Paleo, if you want a boneless option instead they are delicious too.

Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 Cast Iron Crispy Chicken Thighs (prepare while making the sauce)

Morel, Ramp & Kale Cream Sauce

Instructions

  • While your Cast Iron Crispy Chicken Thighs are cooking… in a separate skillet over medium heat saute morels n butter for 3-5 minutes or until soft and cooked through.
  • Add ramps and saute another 1-2 minutes then pour in cream and reduce heat to low.
  • Allow cream and veggie mixture to lightly simmer for a few minutes, until your chicken thighs are almost done. Then gently add in the shredded cheese, stirring to combine.
  • Cook your sauce until it’s as thick as you’d like. Serve your chicken on top, enjoy!

Notes

*I have made this recipe recently with a tangy sharp raw white cheddar cheese from a local farm – you could use parmesan, romano, asiago, etc they would be delicious also!
And green (spinach, kale, etc can be used in place of the ramp greens)

  1. When I click on the link, for Cast Iron Crispy Chicken Thighs, I get rerouted back to this page and if I try to go there directly by typing it in the URL, I get a page 404 error. Finally, I just clicked on Recipes and scrolled down until I found it. You might want to fix your link.

    1. Thanks for the heads up Andrea – I tested the link and it seems to work fine for me – I did have some general site issues that may of caused the problem overall. Much Appreciated 🙂
