Oyster Mushroom Chicken



I couldn't resist myself when I see fresh oyster mushroom in the Asian market.  I loved to serve variety of mushrooms for my family.  Oyster mushroom is said to be able to lower the cholesterol levels as it naturally contains lovastatin.  All I know is mushroom is good for us so I am trying to cook it often.  However, my Evy is not a mushroom lover which makes it hard for me.  Because I am trying to give her food that is good for her but she just won't touch it.  The only mushroom that she would eat is Enoki mushroom which I will also get whenever I am in the Asian market.
This is one easy stir-frying dish with oyster sauce.  If you have a bottle of oyster sauce, you can make lots of Chinese dishes with it.  There is even a vegetarian version of oyster sauce which is made from this oyster mushroom. 




Ingredients:

Fresh oyster mushroom, washed and cut off the bottom of the mushroom stem
One skinless and boneless chicken thigh, slice and season with a little dark soy sauce, sugar and cornstarch
3 cloves of garlic, minced

Oyster sauce
a touch of sugar

Method:

1.  Heat up a wok.  When heated, add in oil.  Stir-fry the oyster mushroom until soften.  Dish out and set aside.

2.  With the same heated wok, add in oil.  Then, garlic and chicken.  Stir-fry until chicken is cooked through.  Add in oyster mushroom, oyster sauce and sugar.  Add a little water for sauce.  Stir-fry well and serve.

Love mushrooms of any kind. In contrary, we eat less of enoki at home cos they are not very digestible? I am sure you have heard that enoki mushrooms are also known as 'see you tmr' (in Mandarin). LOL!
