  Dried porcini mushrooms 1 Ounce (Or A Small Handful Of)
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Chicken thighs 4 , boned, skinned, and cut into bite-sized pieces
  Sea salt To Taste
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), peeled and finely sliced
  Mixed mushroom 1 Cup (16 tbs), cleaned and torn (2 Handfuls, Fresh)
  White wine 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dried spaghetti 1 Pound
  Heavy cream 2 1⁄4 Cup (36 tbs)
  Parmesan cheese 7 Ounce, grated
  Fresh basil sprig 1 , leaves picked
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon

Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Put your porcini mushrooms in a bowl and pour just enough boiling water over to cover them (approx. 2/3 cup).
Put to one side to soak for a few minutes.
Heat a saucepan big enough to hold all the ingredients, and pour in a splash of olive oil.
Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and brown them gently in the oil.
Strain the porcini, reserving the soaking water, and add them to the pan with the garlic and fresh mushrooms.
Add the wine, with the strained porcini soaking water, and turn the heat down.
Simmer gently until the chicken pieces are cooked through and the wine has reduced a little.
Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water according to the package instructions and drain well.
Add the cream to the pan of chicken, then bring to a boil and turn the heat off.
Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Add the drained spaghetti to the creamy chicken sauce and toss well.
Add three-quarters of the Parmesan and all of the basil and stir well.
Transfer to an ovenproof baking dish or nonstick pan, sprinkle with half the remaining cheese, and bake in the oven until golden brown, bubbling, and crisp.
Divide between your plates, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese before serving.
