My Version Of Sub Gum Chicken Chow Mein

My Version Of Sub Gum Chicken Chow Mein
  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts - cut into bite sized pieces
  • 14 oz. - 26 oz. Chicken stock - enough to cover
  • 1/2 cup - 1 cup Dry white wine - optional
  • Fresh grated ginger root (or chopped fine) - to taste
  • Fresh garlic - chopped fine - to taste
  • Almonds - to taste
  • Salt - to taste
  • Ground black pepper - to taste
  • Canola oil
  • Fresh garlic - chopped fine - to taste
  • Fresh grated ginger root (or chopped fine) - to taste
  • 1 small onion - chopped fine
  • 1 medium carrot - peeled and cut into bite sized pieces - optional
  • Cornstarch (dissolved in water)
  • 1 lb. Fresh snow pea pods - cleaned and washed
  • 1 bunch Fresh Bok Choy - discard tough ends - stems and leaves washed and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 (8 oz) can sliced Water chestnuts - drain
  • 1 (8 oz) can sliced Bamboo shoots - drain
  • 1 (4 oz) can Mushrooms - Stem & Pieces - drain and save liquid
  • Salt and pepper if needed to correct seasoning
Place first 8 ingredients in a pot. Bring to a boil; lower heat and simmer till chicken is fully cooked. Remove chicken to bowl and reserve liquid. Heat oil in a large heavy pan. Add garlic and ginger; cook just till fragrant. Add onion and carrots and sauté till carrots turn bright orange. Add reserved chicken liquid and cornstarch water mixture; bring to boil and cook till thickened. Add remaining ingredients and chicken. Lower heat place cover on pan. Cook just till vegetables are tender. If you need to loosen the gravy use some of the mushroom juice instead of water to also add flavor.

Serve with cooked brown or white rice. Or order some fried rice from your favorite Chinese place.

Updated Picture

Sub gum chicken chow mein and jasmine rice.

Note: I use fresh mushrooms usually. When I wrote the recipe I had run out of fresh so I used canned.
