You can use any type of mushroom in this recipe, I prefer brown mushrooms for a richer flavor.  Bone-in, skin-on chicken definitely provides the best flavor and the most tender chicken!  When stuffing the chicken, if you have a little bit of filling leftover, just lift the skin and add it to the skin.  I always use an instant read thermometer for absolutely perfect chicken!
