campbell's cream of chicken soup (don't substitute)
campbell's chicken broth (don't substitute)
cooked chicken breasts, diced
1Mix the soups together and bring to a simmer. Add chicken and simmer for 10 mins to heat the chicken thorougly.
Green onions, thinly sliced
Sweet bell pepper, diced
Frozen sweet petite peas, thawed & do not cook them
Water chestnuts, diced
Slivered almonds, toasted
Grated cheese, optional
Ladle chicken and sauce over rice and top with any combination of the toppings. Caution, this makes a big serving so start out easy with the rice and chicken with sauce as this builds up when adding the toppings.
This is a very popular recipe in Utah, not only with households, but restaurants as well.
This is such an addictive dish and a big crowd pleaser. I double the recipe and it's still not enough to leave for leftovers!

I had this once at a church function, as a kid, and remember loving it. So happy to stumble on the recipe here! Thanks for posting it!
My one concern is trying to find healthier options for the chowmein noodles & cream of chicken... The chowmein noodles usually have trans fat. I bet one of the local health food stores will have better versions.
Debbie, if you use rotisserie chicken, do you still use the sauce...or just by itself?

I just served this (with my slight variations, like whole grain rice & better than bullion to replace chicken broth) & despite my family grimacing at it before they tasted it, EVERYONE ended up really liking it.
I was happy to see that the chow mein noodles my regular grocery store carries have cut out the trans fat that used to be in them. :) I guess consumers reading labels does make a difference.
