I have never heard of Chao Pat Chin..looks very yummy with seafood and chicken. Is the pronunciation hokkien?
This sounds wonderful! A very interesting combination of vegetables, meat, and nuts!
It looks so bright and fresh – I do think chopsuey is overcooked often! Love the mix of chicken, seafood, and veggies!
I’ve never heard of this dish, but it sounds and look delicious! Also I don’t think I’ve ever combined chicken with seafood, but why not?!
