  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded lemon peel

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 small whole chicken legs (drumstick and thigh), skinned (about 5 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cups quartered or sliced fresh cremini, shiitake, and/or button mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 8 cups sourdough baguette cut into 1-inch pieces (12 to 14 ounces)

  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup snipped flat leaf Italian parsley

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet; add mushrooms and garlic. Cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until just tender. Stir in remaining sage mixture.
