Taro and shiitake mushrooms bring earthy goodness and incredible flavor to meat dishes. Chicken wings are the perfect match for this recipe, as they stay tender and juicy without needing a long cooking time.

I’ve had this dish a lot, and it’s always a hit. Imagine chicken wings in a tasty savory sauce mixed with taro, Shiitake mushrooms, ginger, and spring onions—so good, you’ll keep craving it!

Ingredients for Taro Chicken Wings recipe
  • Taro: Taro comes in various types with unique textures and flavors. I love the ones from Southern China—they’re soft and starchy. I found them in the freezer section of Chinese supermarkets. If you can’t find them, feel free to use the ones you have on hand.
  • Shiitake Mushroom: I opted for pre-cut Shiitake mushrooms for convenience, but you can go for whole dried Shiitake mushrooms. Just soak them in water, slice them, or cook them whole—whatever works for you!
  • Chicken Wings: When it comes to chicken wings, I prefer the middle parts. You can usually find these in the butcher’s section.
  • Soy Sauce: Soy sauce is a key player in this dish, and using a high-quality one can make a big difference. The dark soy sauce is mainly for coloring; if you don’t have it, feel free to skip it.
