Another quick stir fry for a lazy night....
Did a quick check in the kitchen to see what I had handy.
Opened the fridge: cooked chicken breast in the pantry: dried shiitake mushroom and soybean sticks
Decided to do a stir fry with famous-never fail oyster sauce and tons of garlic.
We were also fighting a cold so I made sure the garlic was not cooked all the way ( natural antibiotic)
The semi cooked garlic along with the oyster sauce gave the mushrooms a slightly buttery chewy texture which I like. The result was perfect, a savory side dish good with salad, rice or congee.
- chicken - cooked + shredded
- dried shiitake mushroom - soak in warm water until soft- thinly sliced
- dried bean curd stick- soak in warm water until soft - cut into half inch size
- oyster sauce
- head of garlic - minced
- white pepper
Heat pan with oil, add half of the minced garlic, mushroom, cook for a minute then
add bean curd sticks and chicken, give it quick stir and toss
add the rest of the garlic and oyster sauce, give it quick stir and toss again make sure it all mixed well.
Great with fresh cilantro!
