Chicken Chow Mein Crockpot

1 T oil
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1" pieces
4 carrots, thinly sliced
4 green onions, sliced (include green portion)
3 stalks celery, sliced
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 T sugar
1/3 cup light soy sauce
1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 t ground ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
8 oz bean sprouts
8 oz water chestnuts, sliced
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup water

Heat oil in skillet & brown chicken. Put chicken pieces in crock pot. Add all ingredients except cornstarch & water.

Stir & cover; cook on low 6 to 8 hours. Turn to high.

Combine cornstarch & cold water in a small bowl; stir until dissolved. Stir in the crock pot liquids. Keeping cover slightly ajar to allow steam to escape, cook until thick, about 15 to 30 minutes.

Serve over rice or with chow mein noodles. May be doubled for 5-quart crock pot. Serves 6.
