    Empress Chicken is a crunchy sweet & sour dish that used to be a common restaurant staple back in the day.

    2 c. onion chunks
    2 c. diagonally sliced celery
    2 c. sliced mushrooms
    1 (8 1/2 oz.) can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
    2 whole chicken breasts, boned and skinned
    1 tbsp. oil
    1 (8 1/2 oz.) can chow mien noodles

    1/4 c. soy sauce
    2 tbsp. honey
    2 tbsp. catsup
    2 tbsp. cider vinegar
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp. ground ginger
    1 tbsp. cornstarch

    Combine soy sauce, honey, catsup, vinegar, garlic and ginger. Dissolve cornstarch in the mix. Set aside. Prepare vegetables and cut chicken into chunks. Heat oil over high heat in large skillet or wok. Add onions, celery, mushrooms, and water chestnuts. Stir-fry about 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender crisp. Remove from skillet.
