Tamarind Chicken With Bean Sprouts & Mushrooms

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

Another Thai-inspired dish. This stir-fry has a mellow, slightly sour flavor from the Tamarind concentrate.


  1. In a small bowl, combine first four ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a wok over high heat. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic; stir-fry for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the sauce, and stir until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat, then stir in bean sprouts and habanero pepper.
  5. Serve over brown rice.

I chose this recipe because I had all the ingredients on hand. I followed it exactly and it was awful! The tamarind was way too strong and there were seeds in the tamarind paste that almost broke my husband's tooth. I keep tamarind around for Thai food and use it in small quantities. I should have realized that it was way too much.

Very good even without the tamarind paste, which I couldn't find. Thanks for sharing!
