in Millennium Park, a show partner for 2016 and again in 2017, offers
suggestions for plants that repel mosquitoes, from basil to catnip.

also lend freshness and flavor to your recipes, of course. Chef Didier
Durand, a longtime supporter of the Chicago Flower & Garden Show and
regular Garden Gourmet presenting chef, shares a sumptuous recipe for
chicken breasts made with herbs and wild mushrooms. Bon appetit!
Wild Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breast By Chef Didier Durand Serves 4 Ingredients:
4 (6oz.) single chicken breasts, skin on
4 T. olive oil
cup of sautéed, sliced wild mushrooms of your liking ( Chef Durand
uses crimini, button, shiitake, chanterelle and/or brown trumpets)
1 large garlic clove, sliced
1 fresh, ripe plum tomato diced
1 medium shallot, diced
1 green onion, thinly sliced
Fresh Herbs from your garden
¼ tsp. salt
? tsp. black peppercorn, ground
2 Tablespoon of bread crumbs
a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the stuffing: roasted
mushrooms, tomatoes, shallots, garlic, green onion, herbs, bread crumbs
and seasoning, blend with a wooden spatula. Set aside. Place each chicken breast on a board, pound lightly on the thick side. With a sharp thin knife make an incision length wise. Using
a spoon, divide mixture/stuffing among the four chicken breasts. Use
your hand (or a pastry bag ) to push all stuffing inside the chicken
breasts. Heat a little oil in a sauté pan and place the chicken
breasts, skin side first. Cook on both side (cook for 4 minutes on each
side ). Permit to rest for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
2017 marks the 170th year since the event originally began, tracing its roots to 1847.
