I remember eating this meal at home with my parents and three older brothers. Back then, I had to fight for extra water chestnuts. These days I eat this at home with my husband and three little boys. They don’t fight for the water chestnuts, so I get them all to myself and I LOVE them in this easy recipe.
This is easy to make, it’s quick, and it’s made with ingredients that you probably have in your pantry right now.
1/2 stick butter
Cooked chicken, cut up into bite sized pieces
1 Red pepper, chopped
2 stalks Celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 can water chestnuts
1 c chicken broth
2 T flour or cornstarch
1. Melt butter in pan
2. Sauté carrots, onion, celery, pepper until tender
3. Stir flour/cornstarch into broth and set aside
4. Add chicken, water chestnuts, a little soy sauce to taste, and flour/broth mixture. Heat until thickened.
5. Serve with cooked rice.
