Chicken and Shiitake Mushroom in Pasta

| On 22, Jul 2013

One of the most fascinating creatures are the mushroom and I am talking about the edible ones. Why thought so? Because they are actually fungi. Just try imagining eating a fungus — it’s somehow a little undesirable, right? However, I can’t resist chewing on these chewy creatures.

What’s great is that my mother also loves it. She add these supposedly-parasites in her version of Pinakbet. She usually adds the oyster mushroom.

Shiitake Mushroom is another variety that is well-used here in our home. My sisters love them added in Chopseuy or other vegetable dishes.

I came up with a dish featuring Shiitake Mushrooms along with chicken and pasta. This is in a little resemblance with adobo with a little spicy sauce.

Here are the ingredients:

  • 1 cup shiiitake mushroom – chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken breast – chopped
  • 2 cups cooked spaghetti pasta
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 medium onion – chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1/2 knob ginger – chopped
  • 2 table spoon brown sugar
  • 1 piece laurel leaves
  • Ground pepper to taste
  • 1 cup water


  1. Saute garlic and onion.
  2. Add chicken breast and let it simmer for a while.
  3. Add soy sauce, vinegar and water. Boil until the sauce thickens.
  4. Turn into low fire and add shiitake mushroom, laurel, ground pepper and ginger. Boil for a minute.
  5. Add the pasta and mix well.
  6. Serve and enjoy.
