Author Notes: This is a riff on one of my favorite dishes from one of my favorite Asian restaurants. I like to serve it over brown basmati rice. Note: This dish also works very well with either beef or tofu, and can be easily doubled or quadrupled!RellaBellaK

I should add that I tripled the recipe.

Pretty good flavors. With ingredients like soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and a touch of hot sauce - you can't go wrong. The trouble I had with the recipe was in the cooking of the meat. I'm not an expert at cooking big chunks of meat and was a bit surprised that the recipe called for a mere 5 minutes of cooking on each side of breast. Even after pounding the meat before cooking and adding 10 minutes of extra cooking, the meatier ends remained uncooked on the inside. I ended up cutting the breasts into thirds right in the skillet so that the meat would cook evenly. I also added a bit more oil (sesame + toasted sesame) to keep the mushrooms, onions and chicken from sticking. It was unclear to me from the recipe when to add the toasted sesame oil.
