Chicken Wings and Mushrooms in Oyster Sauce


Everyone seems to like chicken wings. In America, when you mention chicken wings you immediately think of Buffalo wild wings which are deep-fried and then coated with butter and hot sauce.


In China however, you are more likely to think of them coated with oyster flavored sauce. This is such a recipe and it also calls for button mushrooms.


The chicken wings are first disjointed, coated with soy sauce and cornstarch and then deep-fried in oil until golden brown.


Next you stir-fry the "Chinese Trinity", (garlic, ginger and scallions.) Then you add the chicken wings, the mushrooms and the oyster sauce mixture to the pan and cook them until the wings are tender.


Of course you could substitute Chinese mushrooms for the button mushrooms or you could use a combination of several different mushrooms.


Another interessting variation would be to add blanched snow peas and sliced water chestnuts. Use your imagination.

Looks pretty good. You're right - I saw chicken wings and Chinese wings never crossed my mind, just Buffalo wings. This recipe looks easy enough and is a nice change.
