Egg Foo Young with Chicken and Shrimp

Easy Egg Foo Young with Chicken and Shrimp

If you buy Egg Foo Young from a Chinese restaurant, there’s a good chance that it will be delicious but quite heavy tasting and full of things that aren’t so great for you.  This Egg Foo Young dish is different in that it is a recipe based out of South East Asia rather than China, and has a healthier ingredient list and overall lighter taste.  I crave Chinese Egg Foo Young in the winter time, but I crave this lighter Egg Foo Young all year round!  To me it tastes better, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.  The sauce adds some sweetness to the dish, if watching your sugar intake you may want to use a smaller portion of sauce.  My whole family loves this dish, and it’s an easy way for me to get them to eat proteins and vegetables.

    This would be really fun to make. I’ve had Egg Foo Yung at restaurants but it would be great to start making it myself.

    I don’t eat meat of any sort, but I know that my son would probably love this. He loves chicken. 🙂

    This in itself is a complete meal. There is meat and veggies, and a flour (as a carbohydrate source). Perfect for a easy to prepare lunch or dinner at home. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve never tried shrimp and chicken together before. It’s something both my boyfriend and myself like so I will have to share this for a dinner idea.

    We don’t eat peas as often as I’d like with me being the only one that enjoys them. I might just make this and see how the family reacts. More for me possibly!
