This comforting dish is always a crowd pleaser, including the kids. The spicy chili marinated strips of chicken pair beautifully with the buttery shitake mushrooms and squash. The fish sauce helps pull the flavours together and make the dish pop.

Braised Chicken with Squash and Mushrooms

Yield: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

• 4 Skinless Chicken Breasts
• 5 tbsp (75 mL) Thai Kitchen Spicy Thai Chili Sauce
• 2 tbsp (30 mL) Canola Oil
• 3 medium shallots, sliced thin
• 2 cups (500 mL) Chicken or Vegetable Stock
• 175 g (6 oz) peeled and diced butternut squash
• 115 g (4 oz) shiitake mushrooms, quartered
• 1 tbsp (15 mL) Thai Kitchen Premium Fish Sauce

*Serve with Jasmine Rice and Fresh Cilantro

Directions:

1. Cut each chicken breast into 6 diagonal slices (with the grain). Put into a bowl with the Spicy Thai chili sauce and marinate for at least 1 hour and up to 24.
2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chicken slices, stir-frying them for two minutes. Add the shallot slices and stir-fry for 1 or 2 minutes more.
3. Add the chicken or vegetable stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes.
4. Stir in the diced squash and quartered mushrooms, cover the pan, and continue cooking for 5 minutes at a gentle simmer.
5. Remove the pan from the heat and uncover. Add the fish sauce, adding more if seasoning requires adjusting. Garnish with fresh cilantro, lime and serve with jasmine rice.

    This looks quite good and a meal we would enjoy. I bet that instead of squash that cubed sweet potatoes could be used also!

    I love the colours of the dish, I’m not keen on squash so I might have to substitute something for that, just can’t think what at the moment 🙁
