I’ve been craving Chicken Lo Mein for awhile now and being on a budget, I knew the only way I was eating it was to make it myself. So I used my best friend, Google, to do some research and I found a recipe that looked fantastic. I made a few changes to the original, which you can find here, so I could use veggies that I had on hand. My husband, who does not like Chicken Lo Mein, said it was fantastic!
Chicken Lo Mein
1 – 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, sliced very thinly
1 Tb soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
2 Tb oyster sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
4 Tb beef broth
1 Tb granulated sugar
8 ounces linguine, prepared to al dente
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
1 cup frozen broccoli florets
1 cup sliced mushrooms
Combine marinade ingredients with the chicken and allow to sit for 20 minutes. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the remaining ingredients.
In a small bowl, combine the oyster sauce, soy sauce, beef broth, and sugar. Set aside.
Boil noodles as per package instructions. Drain the noodles and toss with the sesame oil.
Heat a wok (or large, deep frying pan) over medium-highheat. Add the 1/4 cup of oil. Add the chicken. Stir fry chicken until cooked – about 5 minutes. Remove from wok and set aside.
Add another 1 Tb of oil to the wok if needed. When the oil is hot, add the garlic. Stir-fry until garlic browns, then add the onions and red peppers. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes, then add the broccoli and mushrooms. Cook for 4 more minutes. Add the noodles, the sauce, and the chicken. Mix everything together and heat through.
