For the Chicken Egg Foo Young:

  • 6 Eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup minced scallions
  • ½ cup shredded Chinese Cabbage
  • ½ cup minced water chestnuts
  • ½ pound Ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce or Coconut Aminos
  • 4 tablespoons avocado oil for cooking

For the gravy:


  • In a large mixing bowl combine the egg, scallions, cabbage, water chestnuts, chicken and soy sauce.
  • Heat ½ tablespoon of oil in a 4-6 inch skillet over medium heat and add ¼ cup of the mixture to the pan. Flatten the top like a pancake.
  • Cook the pancake until set and brown. Should take about 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for a couple of minutes more.
  • Remove from the skillet and set aside on a sheet pan. Place the sheet pan in the oven set to 250F to keep the pancakes warm.
  • Continue with the remaining batter, being sure to stir the mixture before adding to the pan. Makes approximately 8 pancakes.
  • When all of the pancakes are cooked, add the chicken broth, soy sauce, sweetener, vinegar and xanthan gum to a sauce pan. Whisk to combine and bring to a boil to thicken. Remove from heat.
  • Serve the egg foo young pancakes with the sauce.


  • Soy Sauce Alternative: If you are not a fan of soy sauce, you could use coconut aminos
  • Freezing: These would freeze well after cooking.  let them cool completely and lay them in a single layer on the sheet tray lined with parchment paper.  Place the sheet tray in the freezer to flash freeze for 2 hours.  Remove them from the freezer and transfer to a freezer safe container.  They can remain frozen for up to 2 months.  The gravy could also be frozen in a freezer safe container.  Just be sure to remove most of the air before freezing.
  • What is Xanthan Gum?
