Chicken Chow Mein

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 8 oz bean sprouts
  • 8 oz water chestnuts, sliced
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water

Brown the chicken in skillet. Put chicken pieces in crock pot and then add all ingredients except cornstarch and water. Stir and cover; cook on low for 8 - 10 hours. Set crock pot to high and combine cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl; stir until dissolved. Stir into the crock pot liquids. Keeping cover slightly ajar to allow steam to escape, cook until thickened, about 15 to 30 minutes. Serve over rice or with chow mein noodles.
