Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 500-g pkg ground chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms , lightly packed
  • 227-mL can water chestnuts , drained and diced
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • Stir broth with soy, sugar and cornstarch in a medium bowl until cornstarch dissolves. Add to chicken mixture. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 min. Remove from heat.
