Easy Chicken Chow Mein

My Mother-in-law loves it when I make Chinese food and one of her favourite dishes is chow mein. After a few hit and miss recipes, I found this one which is very tasty.


  • 3 Stalks Celery (cut on the bias into 1/2 inch pieces)

  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

  • 1 Cup Bean Sprouts

  • 5 Large Mushrooms (or more) (sliced)

  • 1 7-Ounce Can Water Chestnuts

  • 2 Cups Diced Cooked Chicken

  • 3 Tbsp. Cornstarch

  • 1/4 Cup Cold Water

  • 1 10-Ounce Can Chicken Broth

  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce

  • Cooked Rice (Hot)

  • Chow Mein Noodles

In a large pot, saute the celery in oil for about 5 minutes until tender crisp

Add bean sprouts, mushrooms, water chestnuts, and chicken.

In a large bowl, combine the cornstarch with the water. Then add the chicken stock and the soy sauce. Mix well and pour over chicken and vegetables.

Bring to a boil stirring until thickened. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve over hot cooked rice and chow mein noodles.
