  • 1 lb Chicken breast,
  • -boneless
  • 12 Mushrooms (white)
  • 1/2 lb Broccoli, fresh
  • -(or 1 pk frozen)
  • 1/4 c Chicken broth
  • 2 tb Soy sauce
  • 2 tb Sherry
  • 1 tb Cornstarch
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Vegetable oil
  • -(peanut oil is best,

  • 6 oz Bamboo shoots, canned
  • -(optional)
  • 6 oz Cashew nuts, broken

Cut the boneless chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Wash and slice the
mushrooms. If using fresh broccoli, wash and cut it up into bite-sized
pieces. If using frozen broccoli, heat it or partially thaw it first.

Combine chicken broth, soy sauce, sherry and about 1 T cornstarch. Stir
well and set aside.

Combine beaten egg white, salt, about 1/2 t oil and about 2 t cornstarch.
Add the chicken cubes to the mixture and stir until the chicken is
well-coated. In a wok or deep cast iron pan, heat about 3 T vegetable oil
until hot. Add the chicken pieces in small batches and stir continuously
until golden brown. After each batch is finished, remove and drain. Add oil
sparingly as needed.

Stir fry the mushrooms in the wok. Stir fry the broccoli in the wok.
Combine the chicken, mushrooms, broccoli, bamboo shoots and cashew nuts in
the wok. Stir fry to get everything warm again. Add the bouillon-cornstarch
sauce and stir until thickened.

Serve with rice. Don't forget to start the rice so that it will be done at
the same time as the chicken.
