As much as I love cooking, I don’tand can’tcook every day. If you are a home cook, I am sure you understand what I mean. Some days, you wake up, open the refrigerator, look at the ingredients you have, and your mind just goes blank. You either feel like you run out of cooking ideas, don’t know what to cook, don’t feel motivated to cook, or simply don’t want to cook. It happens to me a lot and that’s when I go to the hot food section of Asian grocery stores and buy pre-cooked food.

Mushroom Chicken

If you live in California, there are plenty of such establishments, where you can get various types of ChineseTaiwanese, Korean, Vietnamese, or Thai dishes. The offerings depend on the type of Asian grocery store you go to. I love Chinese food so I usually go to Chinese grocery store to get them.

Mushroom chicken is one of the dishes I usually get because I love both mushrooms and chicken. It’s nothing fancy, but it goes well with rice. I also love zucchini, which adds texture and freshness to the dish. Here is my mushroom chicken recipea simple Chinese recipe that you can make at home.

    Oh man I know exactly what you mean. There are days that I end up getting full off of potato chips because I do exactly that, open the fridge, shy away from my items and then go ponder what I want to cook. It’s a crazy world for us home cookers eh?

  2. Is there a substitute for the Shaoxing wine? I seem to have everything except that 1 teaspoon of wine! Love the simplicity.

    Oh man thanks for the recipe. One serving of this is going to last me 3-4 meals and atleast two trips to ranch 99 :) Thanks!!!

  7. Zucchini is Italian squash.

    I’ve had success from time to time replacing Shaoxing wine with brandy. Shaoxing wine isn’t too hard to find though, and in some cases, you could even try asking your local Chinese restaurant if they’ll sell you a bottle. It’s a big tall brown bottle with a red label around it, at least the ones I’ve used look like this.

    Your mushroom chicken recipe is amazing! I tried it out last night for dinner and I’m so glad I did and so sad I didn’t find this recipe long before.

  11. Alex says:

    Just made this recipe for dinner tonight. Though I’m a real novice stir-fryer, your recipe was so easy to follow that it turned out great. It was super delicious! It is one of the best Asian meals I have made so far, and definitely one of the quickest and easiest too. I can’t wait to try my hand at more of your great recipes!

    I cooked this the other day and it was delicious… Thanks for the recipe.. I added soy sauce to marinate the chicken to give a little color..

    I made this dish last night, and it was delicious. Thanks for the quick and easy recipe!

    I didn’t have a wok, so I used my 12″ cast iron skillet instead.

    You can watch the video of my cook on my site:

    Can I just use a cooking sherry wine instead of medium dry sherry? honestly,I dont have any idea of what that medium dry sherry is and what I got on my pantry..Will there be a difference on the taste?

    Thank you and God Bless!!

  15. shareena says:

  17. Erica says:

  18. I know how you feel about cooking. Sometimes, you are just not in the mood and lack complete motivation (today is one of those days for me lol).

    I love this recipe. In fact, I referred to it in my post about my love for zucchini!

    I just made this for lunch and it’s very tasty. I added a tad of dark soy at the end for color. No more takeout for me of this dish. Thanks Bee! I also bought your cookbook and tried several recipes all successful just as described — and looking forward to the second one I hope soon :-)
    More power to you. I really appreciate that most of your dishes are in small servings (2-3)
