We're usually starving when we get home from church on Sundays. If I've been smart I will have gotten up early enough to get something into the slow cooker, but if I haven't we have to resort to whatever I can come up with at short notice, because . . . we are absolutely famished by that time!
This went together really quickly and was so delicious when it was done. I always like to have a few recipes like this handy Chow Mein one up my sleeve. It uses ingredients that I normally have in my larder all the time. You can pick up the noodles at any grocery store. I use the already cooked ones for convenience but you could cook your own if you wanted to.
The sauce for the dish is really flavourful and with the added crunch of celery and cabbage . . . not to mention plenty of garlic and ginger, it's a real winner! It filled our after service tummy gaps at any rate! I just threw together some chicken fried rice using leftover chicken from Saturday night and we were all happy!
