My grandmother got this recipe from a friend over 30 years ago, and I have made additions to it. It's delicious! Serve over cooked white rice or crisp noodles.

I have tried this recipe several times, I thought it needed kicking up a notch. So I basically made a new recipe by adding 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 box sliced fresh portobello baby mushrooms, 1 teaspoon oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon ginger root, 1 pound of fresh green beans, 1/4 cup soy sauce and 1/2 bag of bean sprouts. I used two cans of chicken broth and enough cornstarch to make it a little thicker. This turned out very flavorful!

Ohm, am I missing something here? I have not made this dish because I am looking for a CHOW MEIN dish, isn't chow mein a NOODLE? I see no noodles in this recipe, I don't get it, this is just a chicken dish, where's the chow mein part?

This was pretty good, although not a true oriental taste. Here are the changes I made (a combination of those previously listed): I added about 1 cup sugar snap peas, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 c soy sauce, 2 1/2 T cornstarch. Next time I won't do the green beans, because for me they didn't make much sense, perhaps bean sprouts would have been better.
