This classic from my childhood got a glow up over the years!
When I think of this recipe I think of the 80's. Of riding my bike over to Anna's and then getting into an argument likely over barbies and storming home, of playing ghosts in the graveyard and the CBS nightly news playing on TV.
It's truly the flagship recipe from my childhood and the fragrance of it cooking in our kitchen on Lantern Lane comes right back to me when I make it for my own crew. This has always been a favorite of Emma especially!
I have to laugh when I really break it down as a recipe because it's in no way gourmet or even remotely healthy but it's so good and so easy! At some point after I was grown and flown, Grammy gave me this recipe and for years I followed it to a "T". As I became more confident in the kitchen I started to tweak it just a bit to suit our tastes. However, what I have now is very similar to the original I am sure with the addition of water chestnuts. You can't serve this without the 80's mainstay chow mein noodles, if you do a cabbage patch kid loses their adoption papers. 😂
Serves 4 and can be doubled as needed
I hope cooking this will also bring back fond memories for you!
