Chicken simmered with celery, onion, mushrooms and soy sauce. This is a quick meal my kids have always called 'popcorn' chicken. Serve with rice, if desired.

This recipe needs spice changes to meet our taste. Chicken celery onion and soy sauce are a good start but we prefer to use sesame oil water chestnuts not mushrooms and some chicken broth not water 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and pinch of Chinese 5 spice then tighten the sauce up with a Tb. or less of cornstarch. Serve on cooked rice pass the soy sauce and top with crunchy Chinese noodles. Read More

Of the 3 adults (kid wouldn't try it) at the table 2 gave it a 3 (not enough taste not attractive) and 1 gave it a 5. It was too watery so if I make it next time I will drain the mushrooms. I would also add a touch of cornstarch to the soy sauce to make more of a coating for the chicken and veggies. Garnishing with chopped green onions would help with the appearance. Read More

This was good and simple enough. I used fresh mushrooms and a little bit of chicken broth to replace the mushroom liquid. The finished dish isn t the prettiest to look at. It would benefit from some added color. If I make this again I would probably add some red and green peppers. Read More

Used fresh mushrooms and replaced the 'mushroom' liquid I would've had from the can with 2 TBsps. 'Mama Sita's BBQ Marinade/Sauce'. This helped mellow out the soy/salty flavour. I also added fresh garlic red belle peppers green bell peppers and sliced carrots. Served over rice. Read More

Absolutely delicious flavor!! Once I got home I realized that I didn't have the can of mushrooms that I thought I had:) so I just added a little water. Still a wonderful flavor! I'm sure it will be even better next time with the mushrooms!! Read More

Really is wonderful....like a previous reviewer it is not very appealing to the eye. I followed a few others reviews and altered the recipe. I used FRESH mushrooms did not use 3 onions because I only had one...cannot imagine using 3..maybe 2 but not 3.. I added some cabbage and on my next time of cooking this (it is good enough for me to cook again) I am going to add water chestnuts for crunch and flavor. On the pic you see something red so will try red bell pepper. If I can cook something and everyone loves it A OK with me! Read More
