Recipe for faux chow mein

Faux chow mein - not too bad but definately not your chow mein from the take out place.

Frozen chicken strips
Bean sprouts
Salt to taste (I use Morton's light salt -same great taste just less sodium)
Whole wheat Ak-Mak crackers (in the fancy cracker aisle) for topping (1 cracker per serving)
1 - 2 tsp. olive oil

***You can make some to freeze so I didn't put measurments on the foods. 

Cut celery and onions.  Heat pan with olive oil.

Sautee chicken strips, peas, celery, bean sprouts, and onion until hot.

Serve with 1 Ak-Mak cracker broken into bits on top.

I don't know how many calories it is but it's way less than real chow mein.


Let me know if you try it and if you like it.
