Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced cooked chicken breast
  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms sliced in half
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 8-10 snow peas
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

SAUCE

  • 1 1/4 cup rich chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil

THICKENING

  • 2 1/2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • Mix the sauce ingredients; set aside
  • Mix the thickening ingredients; set aside
  • Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add oil.
  • When oil begins to shimmer, add the mushrooms and garlic
  • Stir fry for about 3-5 minutes or until mushrooms lose that "raw" look
  • Add the cooked chicken and stir fry till heated through.
  • Add the sauce mixture and heat until it boils.
  • Add the red bell pepper, green onion and the snow peas; stir to combine
  • Mix up the thickening mixture again because as the cornstarch/water sits, the cornstarch sinks to the bottom of the dish.

  • Serve immediately over rice
