Chicken Chow Mein

Posted by Picasa

This is a recipe that my mom made when I was a kid - its something her mom also used to make.   It's an easy meal - especially if you have some chicken breasts already cooked up that you're looking to use.   

  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 yellow onions sliced
  • 4 stalks of celery sliced diagonally 
  • 2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, diced in cubes
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp water
  • 1 package of fresh bean sprouts or 1 can of bean sprouts (drained)
  • soy sauce
  • chow mein noodles
  • cooked white or brown rice according to package directions


1. Saute onions and celery in oil over medium heat in a 10-inch skillet until softened (approximately 5 minutes).
2.  Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. (5 - 10 mintues)
3.  Add cooked chicken and cornstarch.  Heat until thickened - another 5 minutes.  
4.  Add bean sprouts and a few dashes of soy sauce.  Cook until sprouts are softened.  
5.  Serve over rice and top with chow mein noodles and extra soy sauce.
