Yellow Shiitake Mushroom Stir Fry with Asian Orzo

Yellow Shiitake Mushroom Stir Fry with Asian OrzoMy Sister and I have a love for mushrooms, so when we were at the green market we purchased fresh Yellow Shiitake’s. There are so many wonderful ways to cook them but I like to keep it simple so you don’t lose their flavors. While we were there we also picked up fresh Asian flavored Orzo for our side dish.
 A quick stir fry with onion, peppers and chicken over Asian inspired Orzo is a perfect way to celebrate their earthy flavor.

A helpfull equivalent table for buying mushrooms:  1 pound fresh mushrooms = 6 cups sliced fresh mushrooms = 3 ounces dried mushrooms

Yellow Shiitake Mushroom Stir Fry with Asian Orzo2 cups - Shiitake Mushrooms
1/2 - Sweet Onion, sliced
1/2 - Red Pepper, sliced
4 oz. - Chicken, thinly sliced
1-2 Tbsp.- Olive Oil
Yellow Shiitake Mushroom Stir Fry wit Asian Orzo
Remove mushrooms from stem and clean. Remove stem this can be tough. Set aside. Saute chicken in 1/2 the olive oil on medium heat until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Set aside. Add the rest of the olive oil,onion and pepper and saute until soft. Place chicken and mushroom and saute 2 minutes or until mushrooms are soft. Shitake mushrooms cook very fast so beware of overcooking.

For the Asian flavored Orzo, we followed the packed directions for cooking.
