1 can (4 oz) mushroom stems and pieces, drained (reserve liquid)

Served this over white rice. You can of course serve this over your choice of noodles. If you want to use fresh mushrooms, then add an addition 1/4 cup of the water from boiling the chicken.
Pairs Well With
This was actual a fluke recipe. I was going to make my Garlic Pepper Chicken recipe and found out that I had defrosted only 4 chicken thighs with the bone in. What I needed was about 6 thighs, no bone, no skin. So I decided to make my Chicken A La Nala instead. Well, I had already mixed together the spices for Garlic Pepper Chicken so when I put the bone-in thighs into the water, I just through in the Garlic Pepper spices.....well....it tastes really good. Kinda like Chicken Ala King with a little kick to it.
