Tamarind Chicken With Bean Sprouts & Mushrooms

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by rpgaymer

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

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.
