CHICKEN AND MUSHROOM STIR FRY

Chicken stir fry

This is the stir fry recipe of your dreams. After seeing Mr N eat this and glow, I could wait to share it with you. It is:

  • Easy
  • Fresh
  • Natural (in the words of the chief taster, Mr N)
  • Crispy
  • Flavourful
  • Healthy
Without further ado, let us look at what you’ll need:
Two boneless and skinless chicken breasts. If you can’t find this, simply trim the fleshy part of a whole chicken and use.

About 10 mushrooms.

You’ll also need some soy sauce (it’s a liquidy seasoning in a bottle mostly used in Chinese cooking). If you can’t find this, simply substitute with Maggi.

Then you’ll need some garlic, ginger, bell pepper, carrot and onions. I always throw in whatever vegetables I have on hand. This is a great way to use leftover vegetables and herbs.

Cut your chicken into strips.

Season with salt and black pepper. I added white pepper to mine. Yummy! Mix everything together and leave on heat for about 3 minutes. I like my vegetables crispy and fresh so I do not let them cook for long.

Sprinkle in some chopped green onions or cilantro if you like.

  19. Hello,I have been following u for sometime now, even though I don’t drop comments but this recipe won’t let me be. Where on earth can I find mushrooms in Cameroon? I need to cook this recipe.

    • Hi Regine, so sorry for the late response. I would say ask around in the market – you could ask people like the women who sell vegetables. Hopefully, someone leads you to where you can find mushrooms.
