Chicken Chow Mein

Chicken Chow Mein

3/4 to 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
5-6 ribs celery, sliced
1 med onion, diced
6-8 cups water
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 cans LaChoy bean sprouts
1 bag (or can) LaChoy chow mein noodles
hot, cooked rice

Add water, celery, onion, soy sauce and chicken breasts (whole) to crock pot. Cook on low for 8 hours. Remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to crock pot. Drain bean sprouts and add to crock pot. Cook on low for 30-60 more minutes (or while you cook your rice). Toast chow mein noodles for a few minutes to get warm and crispy. Serve chow mein over rice and top with noodles. Add soy sauce to taste.

I sometimes like to add another can of bean sprouts to our leftovers to "stretch" it futher.

I like to do this in the crock pot, but if I'm pressed for time, I just let the chicken and veggies simmer on the stove for an hour or two.
