Although you’ll pay more for shiitake mushrooms, their flavor is woodier and richer than white mushrooms and well worth the extra expense. Many supermarkets carry a wide selection of fresh mushrooms.
1 cup fresh pea pods, tips and strings removed
1 cup loose-pack frozen peas
3/4 cup half and half or light cream
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon cooking oil
2 teaspoons grated fresh gingerroot
8 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms or other mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into thin bite-sized strips
1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley

Ginger Chicken with Peas and Shiitakes Recipe at
In a medium saucepan cook pea pods and green peas in boiling water for 1 minute, or till pea pods are crisp-tender. Drain and set aside.

In a bowl stir together half-and-half or light cream, cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

Pour oil into a wok or large skillet. (Add more oil as necessary during cooking.) Preheat over medium-high heat. Stir-fry gingerroot in hot oil for 30 seconds. Add mushrooms; stir-fry for about 2 minutes, or till tender. Remove vegetables from wok.

Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Return cooked vegetables and parsley to wok. Stir all ingredients together to coat with sauce. Cook and stir for 1 minute more, or till heated through. Sprinkle with parsley.
