 2 shallots, chopped, or 2 tablespoons chopped onion
 1 cup sliced mushrooms
 1/3 cup chopped dried porcini or morel mushrooms, softened in hot water,

brown on all sides, and cook thoroughly. Remove the chicken from the pan and
set aside.

2. In the same pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil. Add the shallots
and cook for 1 minute. Add the sliced and chopped mushrooms and cook for 3
minutes more. Pour in the chicken broth and the wine or vermouth, then over
high heat reduce the liquid to 1 cup. Season the mixture with salt and
pepper. Return the chicken to the pan and heat thoroughly. Reduce the
temperature to low heat and stir in the sour cream. Serve immediately. Do
