If you live or have lived in the UK, you would probably have eaten this chicken with mushroom dish before. A popular dish which can be found at most (if not all) Chinese takeaways. This copycat dish is made using chicken breast meat, as well as white button mushrooms. Usually this dish doesn't contain any spring onions (scallions) but I added some for colour. To flavour, you can use either oyster sauce or mushroom sauce, however I prefer the latter. You can serve this with white rice or egg fried rice (that's what I have it with if I order it from a Chinese takeaway).
