What's in a name...=) This recipe is an old favorite from my Mom. She called it Chicken Chop Suey and served it with Chow Mein Noodles. I don't know the difference...hence the name. Either way, I like it!

Delicious! I also added mushrooms, fresh sprouts instead of canned, some finely chopped fresh brocolli, garlic powder, ground ginger. And used Wondra in place of flour/cornstarch. Served over white rice, with the crispy noodles on top. Yum! Hubby loved it, too. Thanks for sharing.
