DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a 6-qt saucepan over medium-high heat. Brown wings (8 minutes). Add scallions, garlic, ginger and water and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until chicken falls off the bone, (1 hour). Pour broth through a fine strainer, discard solids and set broth aside.
  • Meanwhile, place mushrooms in a large bowl and pour 4 cups boiling water over. Let sit until softened (15 minutes). Drain mushrooms, reserving soaking liquid. Finely chop mushrooms and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a 10 inch skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add potatoes and fry until lightly browned and cooked through (10 minutes). Transfer to paper towels to drain and set aside.
  • Add mirlitons to oil and fry until soft (30 seconds). Transfer to paper towels to drain and set aside.
  • Drain off all but 2 tbsp of oil and return to medium heat. Add eggs and swirl skillet to make an omelette. Cook, turning once, until just cooked through (2 minutes). Transfer to a cutting board. Roll up omelette like a cigar and cut crosswise into 1/4 inch thick strips. Set aside.
  • Return saucepan to medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring, until crisp (14-16 minutes). Add scallions, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, until soft (8 minutes). Add mushrooms and cook until liquid is evaporated (6 minutes).
