TRIED ā€™Nā€™ TRUE: Chop suey for when you have company

Jackie Lindley
Special to the Tribune-Star

---- — I’ve had some readers asking for a good chop suey recipe. I got this recipe from Amanda Condit of Henry, Ill., many, many years ago. She makes it for her grandkids now. I know there are a lot of different recipes. And they are very good. This is a good recipe for when I have company coming because I will most likely have everything I need on hand to make it. That’s what I like about it. Thanks, Amanda.
