Recipe: Chinese Takeaway Chicken with Mushrooms

The other day, we were chatting with my in-laws on Skype and they were telling us about a nice Chinese takeout that they had the evening before. Which got me thinking of my favorite dish from the Chinese takeaway when I was still living in the UK. Presenting the Chinese Takeaway-style chicken with mushrooms. 

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).

  1. Yen, this dish is simple and yet so delicious!

  2. Love this kind of homey easy stirfries. Your dish is making me super hungry now.

  3. Hi Yen, what is the name of the ginger wine and mushroom sauce that you use? Where can I get it?

    1. Hi Karin,
      I use Eu Yan Sang brand ginger wine and Lee Shun Hing mushroom sauce. You can get the ginger wine in any EYS outlets and LSH mushroom sauce at any supermarkets.

      Alternatively, u can also try Stone's brand ginger wine which is available at any liquor stores.

  4. Isn't it interesting to see what each country has for their Chinese take out? We have quite different items! :D

  5. Hi Yen,
