Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts, skin removed, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 4 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 6 to 8 green onions, sliced, including green
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced celery
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 medium clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 can (8 ounces) bean sprouts
  • 1 can (8 ounces) water chestnuts, sliced

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oil in skillet; brown chicken, stirring to brown all sides.

  2. Put chicken pieces in crockpot.

  3. Stir in all ingredients except cornstarch and water. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
