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 soy sauce or maggi.


Now heat up some extra virgin olive oil in a pot and put in your chicken.

Let it fry…


While it fries, chop your veggies.


The chicken is done when it all white to the core and slightly brown on the outside.


Dump in the mushrooms.


Add in soy sauce,some ground or minced ginger and garlic and let those cook together.


Now add in all your chopped vegetables and onion.


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.


Enjoy over brown rice!

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

  2. Love it with shrimps but never done with mushroom.
    Get to go find cocobiako try. Colours are appetising.
