Try This Oriental Chicken And Shiitake For A Satisfying Meal
Make this Asian delicacy and satisfy your cravings!
To make this tasty meal, you will need peanut oil, onions, garlic, chicken, soy sauce, ginger, mint, shiitake mushrooms, green onions, Thai red chili, rice vinegar, brown sugar, fish sauce, and jasmine rice.
If you can’t find one or more of these, you can substitute them easily. Try using other things, like sesame oil, scallions, onion powder, garlic powder, pork or turkey, tamari sauce, ginger powder, parsley, red pepper flakes, white vinegar, honey, oyster sauce, and rice noodles.
Before you start cooking, be sure to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the sauce ingredients as you wait, and cook the chicken, onions, and garlic in a skillet as well. You can then add the rest of the ingredients and cook for another 5-8 minutes.
Finish off by stirring in the sweet sauce and serve over your white rice!
You can change things if you want. Some people like to add peanuts or sesame seeds to this meal. If you need more crunch, then you should consider frying the rice as well, for a more decadent twist to this recipe. On the other hand, make this meal a bit healthier by using rice or soba noodles instead.
Be sure to try this dish the next time you are craving Chinese on a movie night in, or when you have your kids’ friends over. Regardless of when, this recipe never disappoints and it allows your shiitake mushrooms to shine!
