- 1 pack king oyster mushrooms (100 g)
- 4 shishito peppers
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sugar

Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Cut the king oyster mushrooms lengthwise in half. If long, cut across in half. Use the tip of your knife to make incisions in the shishito peppers.
Heat 1/2 tbsp of vegetable oil in a pan. Place the chicken skin-side down. Fry for 4 minutes at medium heat. Turn over and fry for 3 more minutes.
Push the chicken to the side of the pan and use the empty space to fry both sides of the mushrooms until golden brown. Add the shishito peppers and stir-fry briefly.
Add [A] to the pan. Turn up the heat to reduce the liquid until the ingredients have a glistening coat.
