Chicken Chow Mein


When I was in college - I would spend a lot of weekends with my grandparents and every time my mam-ma would make me chicken chow mein and her famous chocolate pie. I haven't had that in probably 15 years and all the sudden it's all I can think about. I have been craving it for weeks. My mam-ma passed away several years ago and neither my mom or I could find the recipe but we think this is pretty close.

2 or 3 chicken breasts
1 carrot
1 celery stalk
1 diced red pepper
1 4 oz can of sliced mushrooms (or fresh mushrooms)
1 can water chesnuts
1 can baby corn (I used half the can)
1 can bamboo shoots
Sesame Seed Oil
Soy Sauce
Chow mein noodles or white rice

Boil the chicken breasts. Save the chicken broth. In a large pan - put a tbsp or two of sesame seed oil over medium heat and saute all the vegetables for 10 minutes or so. Cut the chicken into small pieces and add in. Add 2 cups of chicken broth and soy sauce to taste (I added quite a bit). Leave on medium heat and cook another 10 minutes or so. Serve over chow mein noodles. (or white rice if you prefer).

Last night I made the Swiss Stuffing Chicken that you made and froze when you were pregnant with Harper. I make it A LOT - it's a go to recipe for me and I have many variations of it now. Thanks!

How long do you boil the chicken? I know it cooks later on so I don't want to overcook it but I'm a freak when it comes to cooking chicken so I don't want to undercook it. Thanks! Can't wait to try it!

I am greatly weighed down by your opinions for that specific tale. A additional deeper and staged expertise could well be very fine for me
