Ginger and Black Fungus Chicken Recipe (姜丝云耳鸡)


Recipe: Ginger and Black Fungus Chicken (姜丝云耳鸡)

Adapted from “Thai Cooking Made Easy


1 skinless & boneless chicken breast (cut into strips)
2 inches ginger (peeled and cut into thin strips)
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon fermented soy beans (taucheo)
4 pieces dried black fungus (pre-softened in warm water for 30 minutes, then cut into bite-size pieces)
1 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 small red onion (quartered)
2 tablespoons water
1 stalk scallion (cut into 1 inch length)


Heat up the cooking oil in a wok and stir fry the ginger strips until aromatic. Add in the onions and black fungus and do a few quick stirs. Add the fermented soy bean before adding the chicken strips into the wok. Stir-fry the chicken meat until the color changes, then add in oyster sauce, kecap manis, and sugar. Stir all ingredients together before adding in the water. Add the scallions, do a few quick stirs, dish out and serve hot with steamed rice.

Cook’s Notes:

Black fungus is also called “cloud ear” (云耳) or “wood ear” (木耳).

    I’ve seen that cookbook in my local library. I think I’ll go pick it up today! I’d love to try this with shiitake mushrooms. Looks yummy, I can almost smell it from here!

    Hi Bee, cooked this tonight, the gingery taste compliments the sauce and fungus very well. Another great recipe, thank you! I’m off to try your Mongolian beef next, another of my daughter’s favourite dish to order when we eat out.
