Chinese Mushroom Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
This is another Chinese take-out knock-off of mine.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 lb boneless chicken thighs
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 large cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp ground ginger
2 6-oz cans straw mushrooms
½ cup of dried shiitake mushroom slices, re-hydrated in boiling water
4 small zucchini, about 1.5 lb
Cut the chicken and zucchini into bite-sized pieces.
Pour the vegetable and sesame oil into a skillet and heat over high until a sprinkle of water jumps in the oil.
Put the chicken into the skillet and cook through, stirring constantly. Pour on the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, and ground ginger. Stir to coat.
Push the chicken to the sides and add the zucchini. Cook ¾ of the way, then add mushrooms and one tablespoon of the water used to re-hydrate the mushrooms and stir it all together. Reduce liquid until it is nearly gone. Serve over rice, noodles, or alone.
