Marination Procedure:

  1. Place the chicken cubes in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the crushed garlic, ground black pepper, garlic oil, and Mama Sita’s Oyster Sauce.
  3. Fold. Cover and keep in the refrigerator for about an hour.

 

Cooking Procedure:

  1. In a non-stick, shallow pan (about 9.5 inches in dimension), heat 4 tsp of cooking oil on medium heat.
  2. Add a portion of the marinated chicken, spreading well across the pan so each piece touches the oil.
  3. Turn the fire to high heat and sear the chicken in 3-4 batches so as not to overcrowd the pan. Overcrowding the pan and using low heat may result in chicken becoming watery.
  4. Occasionally stir until the chicken changes in color to brown.

  8. Increase to medium heat and add sliced mushrooms and cook for another 30-40 seconds.
  9. Add the browned chicken. Stir in Mama Sita’s Oyster Sauce and stir-fry for another 40-50 seconds.
