The Egg Foo Young Experiment

I had Bean Sprouts in the fridge I needed to use so yesterday I attempted the great Egg Foo Young Experiment. Not authentic I'm soooo sure... I am after all 1/2 Sicilian, 1/2 Brit but it was yummy.

Shelly's Chicken Egg Foo Young

1 1/2 cups Bean Sprouts
2 Green Onions, chopped
1 Yellow Onion, chopped
1 cup diced cooked Chicken
3 Eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon Corn Starch
1 cup Chicken Broth
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

Saute bean sprouts in a T of olive oil till they just give a bit. About 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Saute both onions till golden. Add bean sprouts back to pan. Add diced chicken. Spread around so chicken is distributed around the pan evenly. Pour beaten eggs over. Cook till golden on bottom. Flip and cook 2 minutes more. Remove from pan and keep warm while you prepare the sauce. Mix cornstarch, chicken broth and soy sauce together pour into pan. Heat till thickened. Pour over egg foo young. Serves 4.

Verdict: Tasty

Changes for next time: Maybe I'll try broiling the top (like a frittata) instead of flipping it. I also may try making it with beef or shrimp. I could add a few peas or sauteed mushrooms but if I did I'd need another egg.
