Chicken Chop Suey Pinterest

Chicken chop suey, spicy chicken and vegetable stir-fry, delicious and versatile!

Chop suey is a quick stir fry of assorted vegetables and meat or tofu. It’s a delicious and versatile dish, budget friendly, you can make it with whatever vegetables you have on hand, pepper, cabbage, etc. It can also be made with pork, beef, duck or tofu.

I like to marinate my meat for a minimum of 15 minutes, that’s how it does absorb all the flavors and gets so tender. Marinate your meat whilst peeling and cutting your vegetables, it does make a difference.

Serve this chicken chop suey with a bowl of rice, I count about 1 cup of rice for two servings and an additional cup for the very hungry ones.

Don’t shy away from recipes with seemingly lots of ingredients. Although, I did make this recipe with all these ingredients and loved it that way, just strike the ingredients you don’t like, don’t have on hand or don’t want to buy and try to replace them (or not) with what you have or like
