Right out of high school, I was working as a receptionist at a company called Valtek. One of the security guards who I worked with shared this recipe with me when he found out I liked to cook. I went out and bought a wok just so I could make it. Very delicious!
chicken breasts cut in strips
fresh mushrooms, chopped
Brown chicken with olive oil in wok. Add the garlic. Add veggies, then stir fry for a few minutes until they begin to soften.
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 1/4 cups water
1/3 cup karo syrup

Cook until bubbly and thickened. Serve on chow mein noodles or rice.
