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


  • 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. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry onions and garlic in oil until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl.

"Haven't made this recipe yet... but sure would be nice if you could add a photo of the finished meal. I only added a Rating because your site won't allow submission of my Comment without a 'Rating', so this rating is not a true reflection of anything. I was simply requesting a photo to the recipe. I never buy cookbooks which have no pictures."

"Wonderful recipe! I too used broth instead of water and occasionally substitute sliced water chestnuts or bamboo shoots for bean sprouts. Can even skip the marinating when in a hurry. This is a definite "keeper"."

"Very adaptable to whatever you have on hand. I replaced the water with chicken broth and added some red pepper flakes. I also used fresh bean sprouts. Served over brown rice. This is a definite repeater."
