The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe is based on a dish that I have in one of my favorite restaurants occasionally. It is just full of flavor and the porcini dust combines with the chicken and creates a full on umami bomb.

The best part is that it is about as simple a recipe that you will ever make: combine the porcini dust and salt, coat the chicken, and roast. It just doesn't get any better or any easier than that, and the leftovers make fantastic sandwiches.
