Chicken Chop Suey Recipe

"This is my favorite stir-fry dish," says Arleen Gibson of Simcoe, Ontario. "It's so versatile because you can change the meat or veggies to suit your taste...or according to what's in the refrigerator."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 6 celery ribs with leaves, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups canned bean sprouts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Hot cooked rice, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine soy sauce and brown sugar; add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  • 2. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry onions and garlic in oil until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Add celery, mushrooms and green pepper to skillet; stir-fry 3-4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove with slotted spoon to bowl. Add chicken and marinade to skillet; stir-fry for 5-7 minutes or until chicken is no long pink. Return vegetables to skillet.
