  • 3 pieces Chicken thighs (Boneless)
  • 10 pieces Mushroom (around 12 oz)
  • 1 Zucchini (Medium size, if small use 2 of them)
  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup Water (for stir fry zucchini)
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder (for stir fry mushroom)

Marinate Chicken:

  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder


  • ½ cup Water
  • 2 tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Oyster sauce
  • ½ tablespoon Brown sugar
  • ½ tablespoon Cornstarch (If you want thicker sauce, use 1 tablespoon instead)


  • Cut zucchini around ¼ inch thick. (I used one medium size squash from my garden. If zucchini is small, use two of them.)
  • Then, cut 10 pieces of big mushrooms around ¼ inch thick. (You can use sliced mushrooms in one pack around 12 oz.)
  • Next, dice 3 pieces of boneless chicken thighs. 
  • After that, add ¼ teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and ½ teaspoon of garlic powder. Mix it well. Let it marinate for 10-15 minutes. 
  • In a container, add ½ cup of water, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, ½ tablespoon of brown sugar and ½ tablespoon of cornstarch. (If you want thicker sauce, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch instead.) Then, mix it well and set aside.
  • Now, pour 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into the non-stick pan, then add sliced mushrooms and ½ teaspoon of garlic powder. Stir fry them a little bit and cover the lid for one minute or so. Keep stir frying a little bit and set it aside. 
  • After, pour 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into the non-stick pan, add zucchini and ¼ cup of water. Cover the lid and let it cook for 2 minutes. Then, set it aside. 
  • The following, add the marinated chicken thighs into the non-stick pan, turn on medium high to stir fry the chicken until it changes color.
  • Pour the sauce mixture (Stir it very well before pouring the sauce.) into the pan and stir fry with the chicken until the sauce is thicken. 
  • Lastly, add the cooked mushroom and zucchini, mix them a little bit. 



Cooking tips for how to make chicken mushroom zucchini:

  • The best is to use a non-stick pan to stir fry this dish. 
  • Add more cornstarch if you want thicker sauce.
