  1. In a wok or skillet, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Add mushrooms, celery, onions and garlic powder; cook until the onions have wilted. Add chicken broth and baby corn. Continue cooking until celery is cooked but still crisp. Stir in the green beans or bean sprouts and soy sauce.
  2. Mix cornstarch and water together in a small bowl. Slowly stir into vegetables. Sauce should start to thicken a little. Mix in chicken, and heat through.

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.
