No need for take out. Family-favorite chow mein cooks while you're away.

Ingredients

8
boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 lb)
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
2
medium carrots, sliced diagonally (1 cup)
2
medium stalks celery, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1/2
teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot
2
tablespoons cornstarch
3
tablespoons cold water
1
cup fresh broccoli florets
1
cup fresh snow pea pods
6
cups chow mein noodles

Directions

  • 1 Remove any fat from chicken. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook about 5 minutes, turning once, until brown.
  • 2 In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, place carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Add chicken. Mix broth, soy sauce and gingerroot; pour over chicken.
  • 3 Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into chicken mixture. Stir in broccoli and pea pods. Increase heat setting to High; cover and cook 15 minutes. Serve over noodles.

Expert Tips

Use just snow pea pods instead of the combination of broccoli and pea pods. Or if you'd prefer, stir 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms in with the broccoli.
