Essential Kitchen Equipment

  • Wok or Deep Large Skillet


☑ Before Getting Started

It’s best to have all your ingredients prepared and ready to go. Stir-frying is a quick cooking method, so having everything at hand ensures a smooth process. Additionally, using a Wok, High Heat, and a High Smoke Point Cooking Oil is essential for achieving the desired results.

Step 1 Begin by heating a large skillet or wok over high heat. Sauté sliced mushrooms until tender, about 2-3 minutes. Set aside on a plate and drain any excess liquid from the wok.

Step 2 Next, coat the pan with oil and once oil is preheated, introduce cubed chicken, season with a pinch of salt and black pepper. Continue cooking on high heat for approximately 3-4 minutes until the chicken takes on a golden brown hue.

🧈 Garlic Butter Pro Tip

Only add the garlic butter to the dish at the end of cooking, ensuring it’s fully melted and mixed in before removing from heat. This is to prevent the butter from burning.

Pairing Recommendations

Enhance your meal by serving this Seared Chicken with Mushrooms alongside other hibachi-style dishes like a green salad dressed in Miso Dressing or Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing. For starters, enjoy Japanese Mushroom or Chicken Soup. As the main course, consider  Japanese Beef Fried Rice, rice of choice, or pan-seared chicken or steak with Hibachi Ginger Sauce.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it necessary to microwave the butter with garlic?

Microwaving the butter with grated garlic helps infuse the butter with garlic flavor. However, you can also melt the butter on the stove and add minced garlic if preferred.

How do I know when the chicken is cooked through?

The chicken should be cooked until it forms a golden brown crust and is no longer pink in the center. You can also use a meat thermometer to ensure it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

While this dish is best enjoyed fresh, you can prepare the ingredients in advance to streamline the cooking process. Just make sure to store them properly in the fridge until ready to cook.

Storage Tips

Store your leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. They will remain fresh for 3-5 days.
