Chicken Breast with Vegetables in Oyster Sauce

My two sisters from Los Angeles came to visit for a couple of weeks here in Pittsburgh.  Both are excellent cooks who helped prepare dishes for my grandson Luca's baptism celebration.

One of the food they prepared was Chicken in Oyster Sauce.  It is a simple dish loaded with vegetables concocted by my sister, Bebeng or Josie.  It is an excellent addition to your buffet for any family gathering.  Easy with short list of ingredients.  You can add other vegetables like snow peas or broccoli and even mushrooms if you like.
