Chicken Chow Mein


Chicken Chow Mein

This chow mein is just like what you get at your favorite Chinese restaurant! It's made with tender noodles, fresh sauteed veggies, lean chicken, and a simple savory sauce. A crave-worthy dinner!

Ingredients


  • 1 lb refrigerated yakisoba or chow mein noodles*
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts**, sliced into 1/2-inch thick strips
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery (3 stalks)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1 1/2 cups matchstick carrots
  • 2/3 cup chopped green onions (about 5)
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce,
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce*** (or more to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil


Instructions


  1. Prepare noodles according to directions on package.
  2. In a bowl whisk together soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and sesame oil, set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a wok or large and deep non-stick skillet over moderately high heat. 
  4. Add chicken (working to leave a little space between pieces so they'll brown) and cook 3 - 4 minutes, turn and continue to cook until cooked through, about 2 - 3 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate or sheet of foil.
  5. Reduce heat slightly add remaining 1 Tbsp oil in skillet, add celery and saute 3 minutes. 
  6. Add cabbage and saute 2 minutes, then add carrots, green onions, garlic and ginger and saute 1 - 2 minutes longer, until veggies are all crisp tender.
  7. Toss in noodles and chicken then pour soy sauce mixture over top and toss to coat. Serve warm.


Recipe Notes


  • *8 oz dry spaghetti (thin or regular) will work great too.
  • **Chicken thighs will work great too. Cook a few minutes longer as needed.
  • ***I've also made this with hoisin sauce in place of oyster sauce when I don't have it. They have much different flavors but both give a delicious flavor.
