"Chicken simmered with celery, onion, mushrooms and soy sauce. This is a quick meal my kids have always called 'popcorn' chicken. Serve with rice, if desired." — Kathy Miller

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch pieces
onions, sliced, separated into rings
1 (4.5 ounce) can
mushrooms, with liquid
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.
This recipe needs spice changes to meet our taste. Chicken, celery, onion and soy sauce are a good start, but we prefer to use sesame oil, water chestnuts not mushrooms, and some chicken broth not water, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and pinch of Chinese 5 spice then tighten the sauce up with a Tb. or less of cornstarch. Serve on cooked rice, pass the soy sauce, and top with crunchy Chinese noodles.
I served this with white rice and the whole family loved it--it was quick and easy but SO tasty!
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!
We loved this recipe!
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.
Super yummy with red onions and white rice :) And healthy too!
