Slow Cooker Chicken Chow Mein

Submitted by: SHENANIGAN

Introduction

Borrowed from the Betty Crocker website. Modified a little (olive oil instead of vegetable oil) and added a couple ingredients I thought were missing (water chestnuts and bean sprouts). I'm also not including the chow mein noodles because I prefer it over rice. Borrowed from the Betty Crocker website.
