Chicken Lo Mein is a quick and easy meal to satisfy your cravings.  It can be made in about 30 minutes so it’s perfect for a weeknight meal or when you need to whip something up on a busy weekend with little time.  Plus, it’s enough for 4 so the whole family can enjoy this dish…. or you can enjoy it by yourself with plenty of leftovers 🙂

Start by boiling water and cooking your noodles.  I like to use angel hair noodles or thin spaghetti noodles, but you can use any long noodle.  I’ve also made this dish with whole wheat noodles and you can’t tell a difference (if you’re cooking for a picky eater).

Next cut the chicken into cubes.  Then heat a large skillet over medium heat and cook through.

While the chicken is cooking, work on chopping your veggies.  I like to use red bell pepper, bok choy, green onion, and carrots.  One “cheat” I live by is buying matchstick carrots, so I don’t have to slice them.  Otherwise, slice the bell pepper and bok choy into thin strips (julienne style).  I typically leave the leafy part of the bok choy out of the recipe, but you can absolutely add it.

Once the chicken is cooked through, add the veggies, and cook until tender.

Combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl.  Add about ½ of the sauce and the noodles to the pan.  Toss to combine.  Add more sauce as needed.  If the pan is too small, transfer to a large mixing bowl to combine.  Then put back in the pan to heat through.

Serve warm with the green part of the green onion sprinkled on top.

The chicken is moist and tender, the veggies add nice texture, and the sauce is the perfect combination of savory and salty.  You can eat this dish as is or serve with rice, wontons, you name it!  And it only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish!
