I usually gravitate toward easy meal recipes, ones that are quick, minimal ingredients but are still really yummy.... this is one of those and if you are lucky enough to have leftovers - Oh wow....... it's even better!
First off I just browned some chopped up chicken & onion in a little seaseme oil until chicken was almost cooked inside.
Then I added a bag of coleslaw mix, now you could shred your own but really ...
Who's got time for that?
I add the entire bag right on top of the chicken and then the remaining ingredients and voila, dinner done in about 15 mins.
Gotta love that!
My mom used to make something like this when I was growing up but she used to mix rice into it as well, when I recently asked her about the recipe her reply was......
"Oh honey I don't know, I used to just throw a bunch of stuff together in the pan"
Then I got to thinking, that's when she was watching 'Wok with Yan', a Canadian cooking show featuring Stephen Yan cooking up Chinese cuisine.
Come to think of it, that's about the time mom bought her wok -
I felt so worldly when mom cooked with that wok....
Oh la la, small town Ontario and my mom has a wok.
