Chicken and Mushroom Stir fry is a quick Stir-Fry recipe guaranteed to tickle your taste buds. Like most Asian style recipes, Soy sauce and Oyster sauce are the basic ingredients, although you can skip the Oyster sauce in this recipe and still get a good result. i prefer to add Oyster sauce cos I love the subtle sweetness it adds to Stir Fry. Chicken breast or thighs can be used for this recipe though I prefer thighs as they are juicier and more flavourful.
