Directions
For the Base Sauce:
  • In a saute pan, add all ingredients (except the cream) and reduce over medium heat to a syrup consistency. Then add cream and set aside.

For the Top Sauce:
  • In a food processor or a blender, puree all ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

For the Mushroom Pesto:
  • In a saute pan over medium heat, add olive oil, garlic and chopped mushrooms. Saute until they began to soften. Add sauteed mushrooms, seasoned bread crumbs and a pinch of salt and pepper to food processor. Blend until incorporated, but still granular. Set aside.

For assembly:
  • Preheat grill to 350 degrees F.

  • On a pie tin or small sheet pan, place 1 grilled mushroom cap stem side up. Spoon mushroom pesto on top of mushroom cap. Top pesto with a layer of sauteed spinach. Next add grilled chicken strips in a fan like pattern. Then top with fresh mozzarella and the remaining mushroom cap. Add water to pan for moisture and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

For plating:
  • Cover the bottom of the serving plate with the Base Sauce. Using a metal spatula, carefully place the baked mushroom onto the plate. Using a squirt bottle or spoon, stripe the Top Sauce over the length of the chicken strips.

  • Garnish with spinach chiffonade, if using, and bell pepper brunoise, if using.
