Wendell's Chicken Hekka

I don't normally care for Chicken Hekka, but Wendell made this the other night and it was ono.  I liked how it tasted healthy and not fat laden like a lot of other foods that I eat.  He followed a Hawaiian Electric Company recipe.  You can find it here.

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup mirin
2 tbs. salad oil
2 inch piece ginger root, grated
2 onions, sliced
1 can (14 oz.) bamboo shoots, drained
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch watercress, cut 
8 oz. package long rice, cut into 2 inch lengths

Anon, Wendell said that he used chicken thighs. Wait . . . are you implying that it might be . . . rabbit? LOL!

It was good, Waibu.

Tofu sounds good, Didi.
