Ingredients

    water to boil chicken
    1.5 lbs chicken breast, boneless & skinless (2 breasts)
    1 Tbs olive oil
    cooking spray
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    5 Tbs water
    2 cans enoki mushrooms, 7 oz each, drained
    1 can sliced water chestnuts, 8 oz, drained
    1 can young/baby corn, 15 oz, drained
    3 Tbs soy sauce
    1 tsp sugar
    1 Tbs sesame oil
    1 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
    2 stalks green onions, chopped
    fresh ground black pepper to taste


Directions

1) Fill a medium pot with enough water to completely emerse chicken breasts; bring water to a boil. After water boils, add the chicken breasts and boil until chicken is done and tender, about 25 minutes.
2) Drain chicken and shred into large pieces. If too hot to handle, then use two forks to shred. Set aside.
3) Place wok over medium-high heat. Spray the sides of inside the wok with cooking spray to prevent sticking and add the olive oil.
4) After olive oil is heated, add the garlic and saute until soft. Then add the shredded chicken and the 5 Tbs of water. Stir fry a few times to mix, about 2 minutes.
5) Add the mushrooms, water chestnuts & baby corn and continue to stir fry about 1 minute.
6) Add the soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil and continue to stir fry about 1 minute.
7) Saving about 2 Tbs of the cilantro for garnishing, add the rest of the cilantro to the wok and continue stir frying until all is well mixed, about 2 minutes.
8) Remove wok from heat, add the green onions and pepper.
Garnish with the remaining cilantro leaves. This dish can substitute a noodle dish, or can enjoy it with some rice. Makes 6 servings.
