This was good and simple enough. I used fresh mushrooms and a little bit of chicken broth to replace the mushroom liquid. The finished dish isn’t the prettiest to look at. It would benefit from some added color. If I make this again, I would probably add some red and green peppers.

Of the 3 adults (kid wouldn't try it) at the table, 2 gave it a 3 (not enough taste, not attractive) and 1 gave it a 5. It was too watery so if I make it next time, I will drain the mushrooms. I would also add a touch of cornstarch to the soy sauce to make more of a coating for the chicken and veggies. Garnishing with chopped green onions would help with the appearance.

This was a really quick and easy recipe. I served it over rice. My husband finished it all!

Used fresh mushrooms and replaced the 'mushroom' liquid I would've had from the can with 2 TBsps. 'Mama Sita's BBQ Marinade/Sauce'. This helped mellow out the soy/salty flavour. I also added fresh garlic, red belle peppers, green bell peppers and sliced carrots. Served over rice.
