Chicken Chop Suey (with homemade chicken stock)

Chicken Cop Suey ~ Simple Food


Chop Suey roughly translated means “assorted pieces” so that leaves it entirely up to you and your taste what you use, basically though it will consist of chicken, beef, pork or fish  with bean sprouts, rice and other vegetables.
For this dish I have chosen chicken and green beans and you may think that I have cheated a bit on the stock because I have used stock cubes, but I have enhanced it with the flavour of the bones and the skin of the chicken, the stock cubes just make it a little quicker to produce.
