- 2 onions, sliced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp oil

- Heat 1 tsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove the cooked chicken into a large bowl.
- Add another 1 tsp of oil into the frying pan and add onions and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes, or until soft. Remove from the frying pan and put in a bowl with the chicken.
