    Aroostook's Note:

    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.

      I made this last night and it was outstanding; I changed a few things mostly just added more veggies and one small can of mushrooms and served it over white rice. no matter what you add to this recipe you can't go wrong.

      After trying several recipes, my boyfriend said I finally got it right with this one. I used 4 cup homemade chicken broth and added 1 can drained baby corn, 1 can drained straw mushrooms, 1 4 oz jar of pimiento, and 1 can drained bamboo shoots. Definitely use fresh bean sprouts! Served with rice cooked in chicken broth. Had to freeze the leftovers for another meal, or the boyfriend would have gobbled it all up!
