Chicken Lo Mein
Let’s just start by talking about the sauce you will be making for this take-out style dish. It is Uh-Maz-Ing! Totally delicious and really easy to prepare! Feel free to mix up and swap the veggies for ones you like. I used some broccoli rabe and sliced orange peppers. You may prefer some snap peas or more traditional lo Mein veggies! You can also cheat a bit and use leftover chicken that has already been cooked and throw it right into the pan! I have done this with extra chicken off the grill and it is fabulous! If you want extra sauce, you can double the sauce recipe below. The sauce does a great job coating every noodle and piece of chicken!
