For the Chicken Velveting Marinade:

  • 1 tbsp soy sodium (low sodium)
  • tbsp XiaoShing wine (substitute with white wine or Mirin)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda

For the Moo Go Gai Pan Sauce:

  • cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp XiaoShing wine
  • 1 tsp garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp ginger (grated)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Vegetable Medley:

  • 6 dried shiitake mushrooms (dehydrated and sliced)
  • cup broccoli (florets)
  • ½ cup carrots (julienned)
  • 8 oz water chestnuts (sliced and drained)
  • 8 oz straw mushrooms (drained) *optional


  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water


  • Marinate the chicken using the velveting ingredients above. Set aside.
  • Prepare the vegetables and let's prepare the sauce.
  • Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken then cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the color turned opaque. Remove and set aside.
  • Using the same pan, stir fry the vegetable medley (or you can blanch them to get that nice color). Add the shiitake mushrooms and stir.
  • Put the chicken back, add the water chestnuts and straw mushrooms (this is optional).
  • Add the sauce and toss nicely to combine. Gradually pour the cornstarch slurry, add more if needed.
  • Gently toss the mixture and let the slurry thickens so the sauce evenly coats the veggies and chicken.
  • Serve hot over jasmine rice.
