8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 lb)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 medium carrots, sliced diagonally (1 cup)
2 medium stalks celery, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup ProgressoŽ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cold water
1 cup fresh broccoli florets
1 cup fresh snow pea pods
6 cups chow mein noodles

1. Remove any fat from chicken. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook about 5 minutes, turning once, until brown.
2. In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, place carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Add chicken. Mix broth, soy sauce and gingerroot; pour over chicken.
3. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
4. In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into chicken mixture. Stir in broccoli and pea pods. Increase heat setting to High; cover and cook 15 minutes. Serve over noodles.

Use just snow pea pods instead of the combination of broccoli and pea pods. Or if you'd prefer, stir 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms in with the broccoli.
