Chicken and Mushroom Stir Fry

I can eat a dish like this simply anytime. It is very easy to do, fast to prepare, simple and yet very tasty. For this stir fry chicken and mushroom I used dried shitaake mushroom which must be soaked first before cooking and also oyster mushroom. But you can choose any type of mushroom that is available in the market, preferable 2 or three kinds for varieties. Do try!

500gm chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes
10 dried shitaake mushroom, halves (soak first until tender)
200gm oyster mushroom, halves
3 garlic, finely chopped
1 big onion, finely chopped
1 inch ginger, finely chopped
1/2 red capsicum, cut into 1cm cubes
1/2 green capsicum, cut into 1 cm cubes
1/2 yellow capsicum, cur into 1cm cubes
1 table spoon fish sauce
2 tables spoon soy sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
oil for cooking

1. In a pan, pour some oil. When the oil is hot, put in the onions, garlic and ginger. Stir for a while until the ingredients become soft.

2. Then add the chicken breast. Stir until the chicken is cooked.

3. Add the mushroom, fish sauce, soy sauce and stir fry for about 2 minutes.

4. Lastly, when the mushroom are cooked, add salt and pepper and the red, green and yellow capsicum briefly. Do not overcook the capsicum or they will become soggy.

5. Serve is a serving plate. You can eat it on its own or with a plate of white rice.

serves 2-4 people

I recognize most of the ingredients in the stir fry after taking a class in Thai Cooking while visiting Chaing Mai, Thailand. I do not, however, know the red, green, and yellow capsun. Could it be related to the bell pepper?
