Cantonese Chicken With Mushrooms Recipe

We all love Chinese Cuisine, be it Indo-Chinese or authentic Chinese food. Cantonese style is a very popular Chinese food which originated from Guangdong Province. Cantonese food is very popular food among Chinese food all around the world. The flavor in Cantonese food is mainly imparted from the wonderful aromatic sauces like soy, fish sauce, oyster sauce and rice wine vinegar, strong flavoured sesame oil gives a nice smoky flavour. Cantonese chicken with mushrooms is a semi dry preparation I have for you guys today. A beautifully balance of flavour with loads of garlic and blend of sauces makes this dish a perfect starter or top it on plain boiled noodles and enjoy it. For authentic flavours use sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, soy, fish, oyster sauce. I have used button mushrooms here as I could not get hold of oyster mushroom.

Serve Cantonese Chicken With Mushrooms along with Cantonese Style Chicken Chowmein for a perfect dinner night.
