This stir-fry is a snap using pre-packaged oriental vegetables from your grocer's produce section or choose a collection of vegetables leftover from your week of cooking to minimize grocery needs. The thinly sliced chicken breast keeps the cook time at 25 short minutes. Use fresh shiitakes if they are easily available. Their rich umami add a lot of flavor to the dish. Serve this stir-fry over brown rice to soak up the delicious sauce. If you are short on oyster sauce, you can use equal parts hoisin and soy sauce as a substitute. There is truly nothing as good as leftover stir-fry for a satisfying and portable lunch.
