  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 1 8 oz. can sliced water chestnuts drained
  • 1 15 oz can whole straw mushrooms drained
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast cut into strips
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tsp garlic salt (with parsley flakes)


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke. Stir in the fresh mushrooms, broccoli, water chestnuts, snow peas, and straw mushrooms.
  • Cook and stir veggies for about 5 minutes. Remove veggies from the wok, and set aside. Clean off the wok/skillet.
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of vegetable in the wok until it begins to smoke. Stir in the garlic, and cook for a few seconds until it turns golden-brown. Add the chicken, and cook for about 5 minutes or until there is no pink in the center of the chicken.
  • In a small bowl, stir together cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar and chicken broth. Pour over the chicken, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for about 30 seconds until the sauce thickens and is no longer cloudy. 
  • Return the vegetables to the wok/skillet, and toss with the sauce until all coated. Serve immediately and ENJOY!
