This Chicken and Mushroom Fakeaway tastes so good, you’ll never need to go to the Chinese again! Think of all the calories and money you’ll be saving! We’ve perfected a savoury, rich sauce that’s packed full of flavour.
Oyster sauce is a key ingredient in this recipe. If you don’t want to use a seafood based sauce then you can get a vegetarian alternative made from mushrooms! Whichever you use it will give a wonderfully earthy flavour and keeps it nice and thick. All of this deliciousness and from fridge to table in only half an hour: guilt free and faster than digging out the takeaway menu!
