      My husband and I were having a bet to see who could make the best meal using the least amount of money and I won using this recipe. I chose this recipe because I had almost all the ingredients already in the house. And it came out awesome. My husband especially said it tasted so fresh. I omitted the ham and added chopped onion when cooking the chicken.We both loved it a lot and will be making it again!

      This was delicious. We live a long distance from any good Chinese places. One night my husband was craving Chicken Chow Mein and so I logged on here, found this recipe, made it, and it was perfect. I added 1/2 c. of carrots and celery for more crunch. We didn't have rice vinegar so I used our garlic flavored red wine vinegar. We didn't have the sesame oil or the oyster sauce, either, and it still had a delicious taste. Since we didn't have the oyster sauce I made a sauce of 1 c. water, 2 tsp. chicken bouillon, and 3 tsp. cornstarch. I mixed this in hoping to give it some more flavor since we were missing the Chinese seasonings. Also, we left out the ham because we prefer chicken. We will definitely make this a lot! And it is very quick!!!

      How did I miss this recipe before? I was looking for a good chinese recipe to go with the egg roll I had made and froze the week before. Another zaar bud hooked me up with this one. This is very quick to prepare although I did not add the ham and did add some diced carrots and celery. The flavors were excellent. Definitely as good if not better than many chinese restaurant dishes. Thanks Leeann. I will be making this dish often.
