So easy to prepare. So good to eat. Thin sliced chicken can be subbed for the shrimp. Mushrooms may be omitted. You can add more vegetables (like eggplant, celery, tomatoes, etc). Serve with rice or noodles. Any type of mushroom can be used in the recipe. This is an online recipe that I modified slightly.
