Crock Pot Chicken Chow Mein

I love Chinese food and my crock pot so when I found this recipe I knew I had to try it.  It turned out really good. It had great flavor.  Even the man of few words, who really doesn't like Chinese food, said it was pretty good.  The original recipe came from Betty Crocker, but I adapted it to fit my family's tastes.
Crock Pot Chicken Chow Mein
1 pound chicken breasts
1 cup carrots, sliced
1 1/2 cup celery, sliced
1/2 cup onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 -8oz. can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
2 cups chicken broth
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon ginger
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
4 Tablespoons cold water
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 cup cashews (optional)
1 cup snow pea pods (optional)
chow mein noodles
Cut chicken into small pieces.  Spray skillet with cooking spray, heat and brown chicken pieces.
Place chicken, carrots, celery, onion,garlic, and water chestnuts in the crock pot. Add broth, soy sauce, ginger and brown sugar.  Stir. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until vegetables are tender. 
In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir into chicken mixture.  Stir in mushrooms, cashews and pea pods.  Increase heat setting to High.  Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes. 
Serve over noodles.

*You will want to cut your vegetables in a little bit bigger chunks.
