Directions

  1. Cut chicken meat into bite size pieces. In a medium bowl combine the sugar, soy sauce, and mirin wine. Mix well, and set aside.
  2. In a skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat. Squeeze juice from grated ginger into wok, add grated ginger, and stir fry until brown. Discard ginger fibers. Increase heat to high, and stir in chicken. Season with soy sauce mixture, and cook for 2 more minutes.
  3. One at a time add the carrots, onions, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, and watercress. Stir after each addition. Add rice noodles; cook, stirring, for about 3 more minutes, or until done.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Delicious! Chicken Hekka is a local favorite here in Hawaii, so I was surprised to see a recipe here. This recipe is incredible, the flavors and textures combine very well to create a very tasty and comforting dish. I made only minimal changes: used chicken thighs instead of breasts, reduced the amount of sugar to about 1/3 cup (my Mirin was very sweet to begin with), and used about 4 big slices of ginger instead of grating it (left them in the pot the whole time.) Don't leave the Mirin out! Its flavor is an integral part of the recipe. And don't skimp on the watercress either, watercress always shrinks when you cook it. This recipe will be a permanent addition to my collection.

This recipe has been revised. The original submission called for soaking the rice noodles, and this step was not included in the published recipe. Soak the noodles as directed on the package before adding them to the dish.

delish! we added major vegetables though- sugar snap peas, bean sprouts, zucchini, celery, whole spinach leaves, garlic, tons of button mushrooms sliced thick, etc. We also used a larger portion of ginger and just sliced it into chunks, so that we didn't have to do all the grating, squeezing, and picking out of fibers. Too much work! ginger is cheap! Dont forget to soak the noodles (bring water to a boil, remove from heat and add noodles, drain them when you're done with everything else.) We'll be making this again!!!
