Chicken Chow Mein

Gluten Free Chicken Chow Mein

This is a recipe I got from my mother many years ago and it’s one of Sami’s favorites!

Here’s what you need:

1 ½ pounds of chicken breast cut into cubes

2 TBS Olive Oil

½ Onion – diced

3-4 Beef Bouillon Cubes

1 can bean sprouts

1 small can water chestnuts (optional, sometimes I put them in – sometimes I don’t!)

1 TBS Molasses

2 TBS Soy Sauce (make sure it’s gluten free) I use La Choy Lite Soy Sauce

¼ cup corn starch

1 Stalk of Celery

2 cups boiling water


Cook chicken in large skillet with olive oil until no longer pink. Add the onions, 2 cups of boiling water, the molasses, bouillon cubes, and soy sauce.  Heat to a boil and then cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

In a small bowl mix the corn starch with ¼ cup of water –  add to the skillet along with the celery, bean sprouts and water chestnuts – cover and simmer an additional 10 – 15 minutes.  Serve over rice!  We like Kokuho Rose Rice.
