It's time for Tasty Tuesday, a blog carnival featuring, what else? Food! Today I thought I would share another classic recipe from when I was growing up.
This recipe is one my mom used during my teen years. Since we hardly ever ate Chinese food, this was an exotic recipe for our family.
2 TBSP flour
1/3 stick butter
3 slices bacon (chopped)
2 bunches celery (cut in 2"pieces)
1 onion finely chopped
1 can bean sprouts
Boil chicken and cut in pieces. Reserving liquid for stock. Melt butter in frying pan, add flour and brown. Add chopped bacon, onion, and celery. Cook until soft.
Add bean sprouts, chicken, and 1 cup stock. Cook until sauce is reduced and all ingredients well blended. Serve over rice.
Mom and my sister are coming to the midwest to visit me next month. I think I'll serve them this dish and see if it sparks any memories!
