Well, I've attempted to make Lo Mein at home a few times because it's my favorite Chinese dish. I finally nailed it!! The sauce tastes like a perfect mix between a stir fry sauce and a lo mein sauce. This recipe is officially in our family 'must-have' book. Enjoy! :)

Who says you need to get takeout to have Chinese food at home? This chicken stir-fry is so good you'll want to eat this all the time. The sauce is tangy and sweet with a nice nutty taste from the sesame oil. The noodles soak up all the delicious flavors. Get your chopsticks ready for this easy and yummy dinner.

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut up your chicken into bite-sized pieces and add them to a wok or large frying pan. Cook all the way through.
  2. In a separate pot cook the noodles to al dente (just a minute short of the directions). Drain and set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, add all of the ingredients for the sauce except for the corn starch and the water. Bring to a boil.
  4. Once it is boiling, mix the corn starch and water together. Add to the sauce stirring until it has thickened. Reduce to low and cover.
  5. In the Wok/frying pan add your veggies and half the sauce and cook the veggies through. Once they are no longer raw add the pasta and the rest of the sauce. Toss it all together. Once it's all warm and has had a few minutes to get all the flavors happy together, dish up and serve!!
