Shiitake Ginger Chicken

April 18, 2016

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?!

Serves: 2 to 3

Ingredients

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

1 In a 1.5 quart glass bowl; whisk together the coconut milk, cornstarch, salt & pepper till well combined & smooth.

2 In a wok or large skillet; heat the oil on med-high heat about 2 - 3 minutes.

3 Add snow peas & ginger, stir-fry for 1 minute.

4 Add shiitakes & edamame, stir-fry 2 minutes. Remove wok contents to a bowl & set aside.

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.

7 Return vegetable/mushroom mix to the wok. Add parsley, cook & stir everything together about 1 minute till heated through.

8 Serve over beds of rice, garnished with parsley.

Tips & Suggestions

1 Edamame is another name for whole soybeans. You can find this in the frozen vegetable area in most supermarkets.

  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.
