Chicken Chow Mein

Chicken Chow Mein is a classic recipe from my childhood. I love making recipes that were passed onto me by family. This one comes from my Aunt Beulah, and we have enjoyed it so many times throughout the years. I decided to make this for my son, and he absolutely loved it.

Chicken Chow Mein:

This homemade version of the classic take out is easy to make and more affordable too. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Start off by cooking your chicken with a little sesame oil. Then add your onions, carrot and celery to the skillet. You can also add mushrooms, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots or other Asian veggies. Then add your chicken broth. You will make a paste with your corn starch and chicken broth which will thicken the dish. Finally, you will add your soy sauce (or coconut amino acid), ginger and brown sugar. We like to serve this with rice and chow Mein noodles.
