Chicken chop suey is one of my all time favorite take outs. I love take out, especially Chinese. The fantastic thing is, you can make it at home so easily. Another advantage is you can add the ingredients of your choice. I like veggies such as celery, carrots, and snow peas, but you can add the veggies of your choice. The dish can be made up in about 30 minutes or less, which makes it another great midweek meal.
In terms of the spices, we use salt, pepper, garlic, and onions or shallots. As said before, your can use the spices of your choice. For example, a bit of ginger might go nicely.
