Shanghai Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

We love this recipe, and have for many years. I've been making it since not long after we were married, and I still get requests. It's easy and quick. To make it healthier for us, I no longer sprinkle the chow mein noodles on top, but the kids sure loved them! The recipe card says this is from Woman's Day magazine. It would have sometime back in the 80's.


This is wonderful! It's also quick and easily prepared. I considered omitting the chow mein noodles...for about 30 seconds, and then added them. Thanks, Laurel.
