Easy Recipe for Chicken Chop Suey:
Chop Suey is a dish in American Chinese cuisine. It consists of meat, vegetables, eggs and pasta. Chop Suey is a popular dish among teenagers and adults. Many kids don’t prefer eating chop suey because of the crispy and slightly hard to chew noodles, so whenever we are making this dish we take out some extra fully boiled noodles and mix it with prepared sauce for kids. For a slightly different variation you can alternate fully boiled noodles with boiled rice, also you can alternate any form of meat with chicken. This is perfect for snack, lunch or dinner.
