This Braised Mushrooms Chicken is a family dish my Mak used to cook for us since we were young. It's a simple braised dish using dried shitake mushrooms and chicken. You can also use chicken wings or other parts of the chicken. The gravy goes very well with a bowl of hot piping rice and a mean chicken rice chilli.
