A quick way to prepare chicken. Can be served with fried rice. I sometimes add sweet red peppers for more color and vitamins. Serve on its own or with rice.

This was a simple quick recipe we really enjoyed it. The only problem was it was just a little dry. But all in all a good recipe

Being fairly new to eggplant and having tried a few different and diverse ways of preparing it, I'm beginning to think I just do not care for eggplant. That said, I struggled with whether to give this 3 or 4 stars. I decided on 3, but I lean towards 3.5. I made this pretty much as written, minor changes included using coconut oil instead of canola, and adding some chopped scallion and red pepper flakes to the stir fry pan at the mushroom adding stage. I served it over skinny rice noodles, very good way to serve. I used crimini mushrooms (sometimes known as baby bella) and would definitely NOT suggest using white/button mushrooms, although I'm a very timid/reluctant mushroom eater. I actually enjoyed the crimini mushrooms in this recipe quite a bit! I say if you like eggplant, DO give this recipe a try, and if you don't like eggplant, perhaps omit it and use some other veggies such as carrots, peppers, bamboo shoots, snap peas, etc.

We loved this recipe! It is quick and easy, and healthy. (I used coconut oil inplace of Canola) Readers should be aware that when you first add a whole bag of spinach it looks like a mistake! But it quickly cooks down and the dish looks beautiful. My kids think they don't like eggplant, and turn their nose up at spinach. But everyone loves this dish.
