Chicken Chopsuey (Mixed Vegetables)

Filipino Chicken Chopsuey

One of my Mom’s outstanding dish is Chop Suey, it’s just an assortment of fresh mix vegetables sometimes with meat and sometimes all veggie. It’s very simple as yet it truly taste amazing. Chop Suey is very common in the Philippines and every household have their own version of this dish. Differences normally lies on the type of vegetables used and the type of meat added and the thickness of the sauce. In our home, we go with the basic ingredients, vegetables like cabbage, carrots and bell peppers, that simple. Most of the time we don’t even add meat and we also don’t use any thickener for the sauce. It’s really a home style cooking. Sometimes I eat Chop Suey on its own, more like Asian sauteed style salad, but often times we have it served with steamed rice which is a staple in the Philippines. If we’re lucky to have any leftover we used it as toppings for Asian noodles. It’s very versatile, simple and delicious. This version is the basic version plus add-on of chicken. You can use shrimp or pork or a mix of any of these three. I’ll give that choice to you. Let’s get started!

Simple Filipino Chicken Chopsuey

Chopsuey is a mixed vegetable dish, nothing fancy, it’s simple and budget friendly not to mention a very easy dish to make. But surprisingly, however simple and easy it is, I cannot seems to get the way that my mom make this. She makes it super tasty and delicious even without adding any meat in it. I’ve watched her couple of times and did the same thing as she did, and yet it’s never the same. I gave up and acceptable that I’ll never get close to my mom’s cooking. She’s truly an amazing cook, there’s nothing that she makes that do not taste delicious. This dish among the others always reminds me of my mom.

All vegetable Chopsuey

I’ve used whatever vegetables I have in my fridge, which came out to be assortment of bell peppers (Orange, red and green), cabbage and carrots. Other vegetables that works great are cauliflower, snap peas, mushroom, beans or young corn. An addition of hard-boiled quail eggs are fantastic too, I’ll definitely do that next time. This is a very simple and customizable vegetable dish, budget friendly, easy to prepare, healthy dish which makes it a bonus point.
