Chinese Mushroom Chicken

Chinese Mushroom Chicken can be found in some Chinese restaurants in US. I like it because it is simple and yet delicious. When I went to college, there was a Chinese restaurant nearby that served it. Every time I went there, I always ordered it. They made the best Mushroom Chicken in my opinion. I must admit that my recipe couldn't top theirs or it could just be a memory of good old days. However, my recipe still tastes good and I make it whenever I want simple and delicious chicken recipe.
