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!

  2. How do you get the top of the chicken breast nice and brown with crisp skin? Do you baste it with something?
