Chef John's Chicken and Mushrooms

Chef John proves once and for all: delicious doesn’t need to mean complicated or elaborate. In this video, he demonstrates a simple technique that creates tremendous flavor using just two main ingredients—chicken and mushrooms—plus salt and pepper, a splash of olive oil for sautéing, and just a touch of butter for finishing the dish. It’s easy! The trick is searing the chicken to a beautiful brown crust and cooking the mushrooms so they give off their natural juices. Watch Chef John perform this exercise in extreme restraint, then get the recipe for Chef John's Chicken and Mushrooms.Delicious on its own, this recipe is also a good starting point; and Chef John offers suggestions for elaborating on this basic recipe.

LOVE mushrooms and will try this. How does one know if they have the right frying pan that can go in to the oven? Can it be any frying pan that does not have a plastic handle?
