Chicken and Mushrooms Noodles


Hi Everyone:
Today's recipe is an Asian inspired dish. I haven't made any Asian dishes in a while, so today I'm bringing you this delicious, yet super easy Asian style dish. Chicken and Mushroom Noodles! I hope you like this one!

Serves 4
Ingredients:

1/2 package Spaghetti (use the whole package if you want to)
8 oz baby Bella mushrooms
2/3 cup red onion chopped in chunks
6 green onions cut into 1 inch diagonal pieces
6 oz bean sprouts (use 8oz if you cook the whole package of spaghetti)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons fresh minced ginger plus an extra inch of fresh ginger
4 garlic cloves
2 chicken breasts cut in very thin slices
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon sherry
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup of water

To the pasta water add 1 inch of fresh ginger, 1 garlic clove and plenty of salt. Bring to a boil add the spaghetti. Cook the spaghetti until al dente, drain and set aside.

Combine the cornstarch with the water, mix until you have a paste, add 2 tablespoons of each: soy sauce and fish sauce, plus 1 tablespoon of sherry. Mix well and set aside.

Mince the garlic.

Wipe the mushrooms with a clean kitchen towel,slice them in 1/4 inch slices. Set aside. (If you prefer, you can rinse them under cold water.)

In a large skillet or wok, heat up 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Saute the fresh ginger and garlic for about 3 minutes until the garlic becomes tender and somewhat transparent. Add the chicken, season with a teaspoon of salt and cook until the chicken is completely cooked, 4-5 min. Remove the chicken from the pan and add in the red onions and green onions, saute for 3 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and continue to stir fry for about 3 minutes or until the mushrooms become soft. (Add more oil if needed).

Remove everything from the pan, reheat the pan add 1/2 tablespoon of oil add in the sauce we made earlier with the cornstarch and soy sauce. Heat until the sauce is well heated and slightly thicken (1-2 minutes). Mix in the bean sprouts and the noodles and stir fry for about 1 minute or until the noodles are well coated with the sauce.

Bring the chicken and the rest of the ingredients into the pan, stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add in the fresh cilantro, give it one last stir and serve at once.

Enjoy!
