Chicken Lo Mein

Skip the takeout, you can make this filling, flavorful Chicken Lo Mein at home!

Ingredients

  • 10 oz dry package of lo mein noodles
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 lb raw boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 small onion, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger root
  • 1 ½ cups finely chopped napa cabbage, if you don’t want to chop, my grocery store has bagged “Asian slaw” which is mostly shredded napa cabbage with a bit of celery and carrot and that’s what I use, you can also substitute traditional undressed bagged cole slaw
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • ½ cup shredded/julienned carrots
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped

Instructions

  • Cook the lo mein noodles in a pot of boiling water according to package directions. Drain.
  • Whisk together the broth, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch until smooth and set aside.
  • At the same time as you are working on step one (boiling water for noodles), drizzle the oil in a large saute pan and bring over med-high heat. Add the chicken to the hot oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken to a side plate.
  • Add the onions to the hot pan and reduce the heat to med-low. Cook the onions for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and a bit golden. Add the garlic and ginger and stir. Cook for an additional 30-60 seconds until fragrant. Add the cabbage, snow peas, and carrots and stir together. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chicken and cooked, drained noodles to the pan and stir to combine.
  • Add the sauce you whisked together in step 2 to the pan and stir to coat the noodles and ingredients. Cook for another minute and sprinkle with the scallions before serving.
