Madeira Chicken with Mushrooms

27 Jan

Saw a recipe on the web for a baked chicken, and I kind of changed it up to my liking. Seriously yall, try this recipe…it’s the bomb. Kourt and the kids took it down in no time. If you could only smell what my kitchen smells like at the moment…

Paleo Chicken Madeira with Mushrooms


5 to 6 Organic Chicken Drumsticks
4 Organic Chicken Thighs (Bone In)
3 Shallots
1 Clove Garlic
6 oz Mushrooms
3 T Madeira Wine (Or Marsala)
3 T Olive Oil
2 T Sherry Vinegar
1 T Coconut Aminos
Salt and Pepper


1. Preheat oven to 375 F Convection (400 F conventional) with the rack in the middle of the oven.

2. Peel and roughly chop shallots and garlic clove. With food processor blade running, drop in the garlic clove, and sections of shallot one at a time to achieve a fine consistency. Salt and Pepper the chicken. Place chicken into a gallon size ziplock bag along with the shallots/garlic mixture, sherry, Madeira, olive oil, and aminos. Let marinate in the fridge from 30 minutes to overnight. I only let it sit half an hour, and it was awesome.

3. Once you are ready to make the chicken, place the pieces skin side down in a large oven proof baking dish and place in the oven. After 20 minutes flip the chicken pieces over and top them with the mushrooms. Place back into the oven for 25 more minutes or until crispy. Serve hot with your choice of side and plenty of the resulting sauce spooned over the chicken.

    This looks great, Ernie! I am going to give this a try… but could you tell me where I could find Coconut Aminos. I have never even heard of it!!

      Thanks for stopping by Hallie! I ordered mine from, but I know Whole Foods carries it. It’s pretty cool stuff…tastes like soy sauce, but just a little sweeter.

      I’m gonna try a similar dish tomorrow but make it more Spanish favors with chorizo and Spanish smoked Paprika (pimenton) as the base flavors. Good luck with the dish. Ask Sam and Kathryn….it’s really good! They got to taste test a few pieces 😉
