Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

This is a 2.5 qt crock recipe. (YMMV)

1 Tbsp. oil
1.5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1" pieces
4 carrots, thinly sliced
4 green onions, sliced (include green portion)
3 stalks celery, sliced
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup light soy sauce
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
8 ounces bean sprouts
8 ounces water chestnuts, sliced
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup water

Heat oil in skillet and brown chicken (if you don't have time to do this, you can skip it).
Put chicken pieces in crock pot. Add all ingredients except cornstarch and water.
Stir and cover; cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Turn to high.
Combine cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl; stir until dissolved.
Stir into the crock pot liquids. Keeping cover slightly ajar to allow steam to
escape, cook until thickened, about 15 to 30 minutes.

Serve over rice or with chow mien noodles.

May be doubled for 5-quart crock pot.

Serves ~6.
