This was fantasic. I am usually not a fan of crock pot food but keep trying because its easy and this is definately a keeper. I didn't use the water chesnuts or the canned bean sprouts because I don't like them. I added drained baby corn instead. I cooked on high for about 4 hours, added the cornstarch/water and cooked another 10 minutes. Turned out perfect.
Love this recipe, the flavor is perfect and it is so healthy! Thanks for posting this recipe, it is quite flexible and so easy! I put the chicken in the crockpot without browning, used a fresh bag of bean sprouts, fresh ginger, a yellow onion, no water chestnuts, sucralose for sweetener and no sides for a lower carb meal. This goes in my favorite recipes and meal rotation.
So easy! So delicious! I have never made chicken chow mein but it was one of my favorite dishes my mom made. This recipe tasted just like hers! I made it a few weeks ago and will make two crackpots of it tomorrow, which is a lot because my husband, who also loved the recipe, and I are in our upper 60s and don't eat that much. We will be giving this to 2 friends from church whose spouses are going through chemotherapy. I'm a decent cook so I wouldn't take something unless it tasted really good. This recipe fills the bill.
This was great chow mein for a beginner like me. In the chaos of preparation with an infant at my feet I forgot the T of sugar but when it was done I didn't even notice. I also used a whole bag of fresh bean sprouts instead of the can. Yum! To add an extra health benefit I served this with brown rice. It was great! We'll make it again when the craving comes along.
dh loves chow mein and said this was pretty good. As for me, I liked it also because it's so easy to prepare and gave us lots of left-overs, even though I'm not big on Asian food, I thought it was tasty.
Thanks for posting it
I would give this 10 stars! We just loved this recipe! It has the exact right taste for chow mein. Plus , it was so easy. It smelled so good cooking this afternoon! My hubby had seconds and told me to make this again. I added in a can of bamboo shoots , drained, and I drained my water chestnuts and bean sprouts. I had a 15 ounce can of bean sprouts so I put the whole can in there. I used 4 garlic cloves and 1 tablespoon fresh grated gingerroot instead of the powder. I added 1 tablespoon of molasses , a pinch of white pepper and a little sesame oil. I found the amount of cornstarch in this recipe to be the perfect amount to achieve the correct consistency. I served it over jasmine rice with the crunchy chow mein noodles sprinkled on top, just like when I would eat the canned chow mein as a kid. This was so much better. Mine was done in 4 hours on low in my crock pot. Served egg rolls on the side. What a great meal. Thank you so much for posting! I don't have many slow cooker recipes for chicken that I love, but this is my favorite-a total keeper! Clean-up was a breeze!
This is an easy and tasty dish. I didn't add the cornstarch & water at the end, and it still worked out well served over brown rice. I also substituted 1 packet of Splenda for the sugar. Thanks for posting!!
This is yummy and it only needed about 4 hours to be done in my crock pot. I bought fresh bean sprouts to put in it in the last hour, but they didn't last for the 2 days that I had them in the fridge, so our version is sprout-less! :( My kids mostly like Chow Mein because of the noodles that you usually get with them, so I bought Chow Mein noodles and put a little bit of egg omelette on top of the dish. Yum! Made for PRMR.
Delicious and so easy for a week night supper! I only used 3 carrots but followed the rest of the recipe as written -- delish! Thanks for sharing this keeper recipe!
This was really good and quick prep, quite tasty. Thanks for posting.
