CEiMB: Chop Suey

This week's Craving Ellie In My Belly recipe was for Chicken Chop Suey. This is a recipe that if I had come across it myself it wouldn't have jumped out at me as something that I have to make. But, I made it anyway. It looked pretty good when I was making it, I must admit. Then we sat down for dinner and Jeff took a bite he said, "This is good. It tastes like it's from a restaurant. A good restaurant." He is a bit biased and is never short on compliments (which is sweet,) but I had to taste for myself. I tasted it and after adding some extra soy sauce and some Sriracha I thought it was just as good as he said it was. I love that I can make at home something as good as takeout from a Chinese restaurant!

Bon Appetit!


  1. Your CCS looks good. We enjoyed it as well. Simple even thought the ingredient list was lengthy. I loved the use of the cabbage.

  2. Love the photos, and I'm glad you all liked it to. Do you find that your boys like to eat the food you make too? Or do you make something separate for them?

  3. liked it too*, I promise I know english ;)

  4. Alyssa, One of my boys is only 8 months so no chop suey for him just yet. My 3 year old has just entered a "that's gross" phase, so unfortunately he only barely ate it. But, I won't make anything separate so he is forced to at least eat some of what we eat!

  5. Looks great!
    Loved those won ton wrappers......I could have eaten the whole pan....
    I too am a "mean Mommy" and don't make separate dinners.....:)
