Stir Fried Chicken with Black Fungus

I cooked this dish quite often, as I love to eat the soft black fungus with white rice.

This recipe appeared in Mum's Favourite Dishes cookbook (妈妈暧心菜) too. It is such a simple and comfort dish. Three main ingredients in this dish are chicken, black fungus and ginger, and I addded needle mushrooms. 

Recipe adapted from Mum's Favourite Dishes cookbook (妈妈暧心菜)
1/2 chicken, chopped in chunks
2 pieces of large black fungus, soaked til soft and cut into shreds
some needle mushrooms, soaked and tied knot
1 thumb of ginger, shredded

1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp shao xing wine
1 tsp sugar (Omitted)

1. Heat up sesame oil, fry ginger shreds til fragrant. Add in chicken, oyster sauce and light soy sauce. Stir-fry over high heat for 5~8 mins.
2. Pour in black fungus, needle mushrooms and shao xing wine. Add 1 cup of water. Braise over medium heat for 10 mins or until chicken is tender. Serve warm with white rice.

  7. Indeed this is a great comforting dish to eat after a long stressful day...Yum!

  8. When I was a kid, whenever my mom cooks this, the fungus gets walloped first, not the chicken, LOL.

  9. Ah Tze, how come u know I love black black dish huh?
    I will going to cook this dish during this coming weekends... My son will love it very much ...

    Black fungus is good for health ...

  10. Hanushi, I get the purple sweet potato from Bukit Timah Plaza NTUC Finest. It skin is purple in colour and the fresh is purple too. The price depends on it weight, usually they packed it 3-4 pieces in one pack with not more than $2. I prefer to buy from wet market as the purple sweet potato there is better quality, can last longer than what I get from NTUC finest. The last round I got the purple sweet potato was from the wet market near to Chinese Garden MRT, the one opposite the swimming pool.

  14. 鲸鱼,是的,多吃有养身做用 :)

  15. Oh, this sounds amazing! I LOVE all these flavors...and even though I don't think I could find black fungus and needle mushrooms around here, I'd just substitute and still have a fabulous dinner...mmmmmmm.
