Chicken with Oyster Sauce

We had left over of the left over curry fried rice. This time, the family wanted some meat to pair with the left over rice. In the pantry was a can of mushroom, 3 potatoes and in the freezer, 1 pouch of chicken breast. Here is what came out of those main ingredients.

1 lb chicken breast cut in cubes
3 potatoes cut in cubes
1 can straw mushroom
6 cloves of chopped garlic
6 tbs of oyster sauce
3 tbs of hoisin sauce
6 tbs vegetable oil
1 tsp of cornstarch
1/8 cup of water
a pinch of ground black pepper

Heat a large frying pan and add the vegetable oil. After 30 seconds, add the garlic and cook until brown. Then add the chicken, stir with garlic and cook for about 5 minutes (keep stirring to avoid burning). Add the potatoes and cook for another 2 minutes or until they are tender. Add the mushroom and the rest of the ingredients, stir, cover and cook for about 3 minutes. Mix the cornstarch with the water and add in the pan, stir and cook for another 1 minute. Enjoy with steamed rice or any leftover rice you have.
