Fry the mushrooms in the remaining oil, remove from the pan and then fry the onion and garlic until glossy. Add the cream and spoon the mushrooms and chicken back into the pan.

Tip of the day

Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
