Stir-fried Shredded Chicken and Mushrooms with Balsamic

Labels: { , }

One of my favourite ways to make the chicken meat is to stir-fry them with different kinds of seasonal vegetables or/and fungus (gotta try them with pfefferlings next time). It makes a simple yet healthy and delectable meal. Serve with steamed rice or pasta or with some flat bread.

  • 200 g Chicken breast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 150 g Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2-3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Shallot, diced
  • 3 tbsp Balsamic
  • 40 g Butter, diced
  1. Rinse and pat the chicken breast dry with kitchen paper. Shred the chicken thinly and place them in a bowl. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the shredded chicken with cornstarch.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet until hot. Add in the shredded chicken and stir until the colour turned white. Remove and drain. Stir the diced shallot in the same skillet with the remaining oil until aromatic. Add in sliced mushrooms and stir until tender.
  3. Pour the balsamic over and return the shredded chicken to the skillet. Bring it to a simmer and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the diced butter into the sauce and stir to combine. Remove and serve with pasta or rice.

Chicken stir-fry is also my all time favourite dish. Love your way to combine with mushroom and balsamic, adding a tangy taste to cut through the meat. Great.

The beauty of stir-fries is that you can use whatever you may have available in your pantry and refrigerator. With the right seasonings and a few healthy ingredients, you have a great meal.
Your stir fry looks really good. Love the inclusion of mushrooms.

pigpigscorner 2/7/10 22:08

I agree with you! Stir-fries are the best, so simple and delicious with rice! I like how you added balsamic. Great flavours.

Claudia 2/7/10 23:58

I love doing simple stir fries and just change the produce around. The balsamic is wonderful with the chicken and the mushrooms. This is a dish I will definitely wrap myself around.

TasteHongKong 4/7/10 11:00

Angie, you do make an ordinary stir-fry very different.

Jo 4/7/10 12:08

What an awesome dish! I can taste the balsamic flavours already.

Hettar7 5/7/10 00:49

This is completely off topic, but I made a Danish Bread Recipe the other day and I thought of you and how good a bread baker you are. It was a sweet bread with chocolate chips and a vanilla custard swirl. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be, but it wasn't nearly as good as it could be. The dough was really sticky and didn't rise as much as it was supposed to, so I thought it would make the final bread very dense. Although it wasn't really big, it wasn't dense either. I'm going to try it again and see if I can't get it to turn out better.

Katy ~ 5/7/10 03:44

Boy, does the balsamic sound good with this; my lips are smacking at the idea. Thanks for another delicious idea!

tigerfish 5/7/10 05:17

Wow, I would really love to have this in a wrap!

MaryMoh 5/7/10 16:14

Looks simple and very delicious. Would be so good with rice.

A Canadian Foodie 6/7/10 16:04

What a simple combination with incredible flavour. This is the kind of recipe I love. Balsamic is it!

petite nyonya 8/7/10 16:01

I have a bottle of balsamic which the only way I use it for is salad! It's great to have a different idea of using it for stir-fry too!

Mushrooms Canada 14/7/10 18:21

I love mushrooms, chicken and balsamic vinegar! No matter what, that combination is always delicious! Thanks for sharing.
