As I was trying to think of what to make with the chicken breasts in my fridge for dinner tonight, I quickly realized that I had lots of amazing fixins in my pantry for a wonderful lo mein. So, I looked in my big Better Homes cookbook, and altered the recipe they had in there. It was so yummy, I just HAD to share!! I think I might make it tonight... =)

    *You can substitute chicken with beef, pork, or shrimp. Or, you can leave out the meat altogether for a vegetarian version. Top with some sesame seeds and enjoy! YUMM!!
