Lucky Chicken

Jeff made a yummy dinner tonight. This is one of our family favorites that we make over and over. I decided to let him do this post, because he made the dinner:

This is Jeff here. This is one of my favorite recipes ever. It's as good as anything that you could get at a real Chinese food restaurant and it's super easy to make as well! You're almost sure to have the ingredients on hand (except maybe the green pepper which are really cheap right now) A few variations I like to do are to add peanuts (you'll often see those in Asian cuisine so I'm not just a weirdo), carrots, garlic or sesame seeds. If you have chow mein noodles (the little crunchy kind) by all means serve them over this with rice, they're really good.

I think next time I get on the blog here I'll have to share my egg drop soup that was so good that even Zaylee, Samuel and Rheanna (the picky eaters of the family) will eat it. It's even easier and cheaper to make but you'll have to wait for that one. Enjoy!

Lucky Chicken

1 lb. boneless chicken breast, cut into chunks

1/2 cup flour with salt and pepper to taste

2 Tbsp Oil (for cooking)

1/2 cup celery, chopped

1/2 cup green pepper, sliced

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp packed brown sugar

1/2 cup ketchup

Dredge chicken in flour and coat completely. In large hot pan heat oil and brown chicken. Add vegetables.

Mix melted butter, brown sugar, and ketchup and add to chicken and vegetables. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve over steamed or fried rice.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been serching for this recipe for years. I first saw it on the Mike & Maty Show back in the early 90's. I used to make it all the time then somehow I stopped and forgot the recipe all together.

Thank you again!
