What is Chicken Chow Mein?
Chicken Chow Mein is a Cantonese-style fried egg noodles with tender pieces of chicken. It’s a very popular and delicious noodle dish that everyone loves. In this recipe tutorial, you will learn how to make authentic chicken chow mein just like Chinese restaurants.
Chicken Chow Mein Ingredients
Chicken Chow Mein calls for the following basic ingredients:
- Egg Noodles – you can get fresh egg noodles or dry egg noodles
- Chicken meat. I prefer skinless and boneless chicken breast, but you can certainly use chicken thighs
- Bean Sprouts, cabbage and carrots
- Soy sauce
How To Make Chicken Chow Mein
To make restaurant quality chicken chow mein, your chicken has to be tender. In my recipe section, you will learn how to “velvet” the chicken. You will also need a deep skillet or Chinese wok (if you have one). Heat up the utensil on high heat, add cooking oil, then stir fry by tossing the chicken, vegetables and egg noodles back and forth.
This is an easy Chicken Chow Mein that anyone can attempt at home. Trust me, once you master the techniques, you will never order another chow mein from Chinese takeout again!
