Chicken With Mushrooms (Moo Goo Gai Pin)

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Out of the Blue

Recipe slightly adapted from one I found in Wok With Yan published in 1981. The ingredient list may seem long, but this recipe goes together quickly.

A great recipe and it comes together very quickly! Only minor change I made was using stock instead of water and added a bit more than the 1/4 cup called for since it was thickening up a bit more than I preferred. Thanks for sharing!
