Coming to today’s recipe – it’s straightforward Chinese. One thing lovely about their cuisine is that they use such limited ingredients but the taste that comes from it is amazing. It was a lazy night, after coming back from work. I had a tiny packet of boneless chicken in the fridge and a packet of mushroom, crying out to me to be used before it rots. I set out searching for a recipe and found this lovely recipe. I really wondered, there’s hardly going into it, how would it taste. Believe me, the aroma while cooking it was itself awesome, I just couldn’t wait to have it. I served it with some dinner rolls and it was lovely. Thought of sharing it with you all – when you feel very lazy to cook something elaborate, that is! 🙂
