Chicken Chop Suey
Chicken Chop Suty
trrtparM bv the fnlted lliia rrartr.vent
ot Asrlcullure.) WXU Same.
Perhaps you have always thought ot
chop suey as t dish that It too un
usual and foreign to prepare it home.
A a matter of fact, chop suey Is un
known In China; It originated In
Chinatown in San Francisco, In an
attempt to give visitors something out
of the ordinary. It Is made with such
Chinese ingredients as water nuts,
bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, soy
sauce and often dried mushrooms, as
well as chicken or pork, but a very
food dish closely resembling the orig
inal chop suey in flaTor may be made
with vegetable that are common in
most American localities. Soy sauce
is sold in a great many groceries, and
the chop suey will be almost perfect in
flavor if joa can get it If not. Wor
cestershire sauce will do. Soy sauce
contains a good deal of salt, so the
amount of salt needed In your chop
suey will depend on which kind of
eauce you have.
Why not invite your friends or fam
ily to try a Chinese supper some eve
ning ? If yoa have any Chinese acces
sories or decorations, so much the bet
ter. At least, you can make chicken
chop suey and rice the main attrac
tion, with preserved ginger for dea
ler! The Chinese do not use bread
and butter, because they have the
rice, but you may aerre it if your fam
ily prefers. The vegetables on which
w depend for vitamins are Incor
porated la the chop suey-onlons and
celery. The recipe below Is from the
