“An incredible Asian stir fry. One of my personal favorites.” - by Jim
Original recipe yields 8 to 10 servings
- Cut chicken meat into bite size pieces. In a medium bowl combine the sugar, soy sauce, and mirin wine. Mix well, and set aside.
- 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.
- 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.

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."

See morenger 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!!!"
