Cooking Pleasure: STIR FRY CHILLI CHICKEN

The original recipe is a chicken dish but I have added some Erngyii mushrooms for myself just to cut down my meat intake for the day.   This can be served as a One Dish Meal but I have added some stir fry spinach to serve with rice.

This recipe is adapted from Spice Eats with modifications.  Named as chilli chicken but this dish is not spicy if you may think.  It tastes sweet and sourish, sure an appetising dish to savour over a plate of rice.  The mushrooms absorbs the flavours well and the chicken pieces are flavourful too with the marinade, pan-frying and sauces.
