Earthy & creamy is the best way to describe this delectable meal. You can prepare everything in advance, cover & refrigerate, then cook it up in no time at all. In my house there's never any leftovers... what does that tell you?!

Cooked Jasmine Rice for serving - 1 cup per person (see recipe in Rice & Grains category)

1 - 13.5 oz can unsweetened coconut milk

1 Tblsp cornstarch

1 tsp kosher or sea salt

Fresh ground black pepper, 10 pepper mill turns

1 Tblsp House of Tsang Stir-fry Oil (may need extra for cooking chicken)

36 fresh snow peas, tips & strings removed

2 tsp coarsely grated fresh ginger, peeled (see Ginger, How To Peel in the Herbs, Spices & Seasonings category)

8 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems removed & sliced thick

3/4 cup frozen shelled edamame, defrosted (see Tip# 1)

3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken tenderloins, cut into large bite-sized pieces

1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley (extra for garnish)

Directions

5 Add chicken to wok & a little oil, if necessary. Stir-fry about 3 minutes till cooked through.

6 Move the chicken to the sides of wok, so there's a well in the center. Add coconut milk mixture & stir till thickened.

  1. Chicken is one of our favorite and we cook at least once a week. This Ginger chicken sounds great. This one sounds like a wholesome dish.

  2. I love shiitake mushrooms so much! I cook them every week but never tried something like this. Looks like a protein-packed meal there Simone (which is what I like)! Will try this 🙂

  3. This ginger shiitake chicken with coconut milk looks healthy and delicious. I love it, I want to add it to my dinner rotation. Yumm

  4. I love all the green in this recipe, it looks so healthy and so spring-like! (Maybe I have cabin fever???) The creaminess is the reason this is really appealing to me. I’ve got to try this!

  5. I recently tricked my husband into eating mushrooms and realizing that fresh mushrooms are ten times better than canned so I definitely want to use mushrooms more often now!

  6. What is not to love about this Shitake Ginger Chicken recipe. I love that you used coconut milk along with ginger for some great flavors. The green veggies make this so colorful.

  7. I love anything with chicken and mushrooms – this is a different recipe with some bold asian flavors that I cannot wait to try.

  8. Mmm, looks full of vegetables and mushrooms, and with a savory coating for the rice. I like how you’ve added just a little cornstarch (we’d likely use arrowroot) and stir-fry oil, and not cover the other flavors.
