Caramelized Onion and Porcini Braised Chicken Legs

This is my ultimate comfort food but can also be a crowd pleaser and it couldn’t be easier! The key is the caramelized onions that slow cook with all of the chicken juices along with the umami herbaceous punch from the Porcini Paradiso. This recipe is great for leftover so you can easily add a few extra legs to this recipe and eat them for lunch during the week. I highly recommend bread or rice to soak up all the delicious braising liquid but you can absolutely just eat it over sautéed mushrooms for a paleo and keto hit!
