Chicken with Button Mushrooms 蘑菇雞

Imagine, it’s raining outside, you don’t feel like wanna drive out for a meal. But, you only have some chicken in your fridge and a can of button mushroom in your kitchen cupboard. Well, just simply turn them into this Chicken with Button Mushrooms. A simple dish that even my parents also like it.

I first got this idea from a Johor Hokkein-housemate more than a decade ago. Since then, I’ll cook it in rather spontaneous status; like: OK let’s see…I only have chicken…I have canned mushroom...aha, that one!

And again, cooked this chicken with button mushrooms for dinner tonight.
