Lo Mein is a popular noodle dish in Hong Kong where noodles are boiled, drained and then stirred in with a savory sauce. Add chicken, and you have a healthy and easy Chicken Lo Mein. Making this dish is quick – it only takes 20 minutes. This homemade Lo Mein recipe is definitely much better than Chinese takeout.
Chicken Lo Mein Sauce
Lo Mein sauce is made of a stock (chicken or pork bone stock) and seasonings such as soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and sesame oil. The sauce is cooked first, and then the lo mein noodles are added to the sauce. That’s why Lo Mein is sometimes referred as stirred noodles.
Chicken Lo Mein vs. Chicken Chow Mein
Chicken Lo Mein is made without stir-frying, meaning the noodles are mixed with the Chicken Lo Mein sauce, not stir-fried. Chicken Lo Mein is saucier and the noodles are “wet.” Chicken Chow Mein is stir-fried noodles with chicken, and there is no sauce, so each strand of the noodle is dry.
Method/Directions: cook the Lo Mein noodles according to package instructions but pre-al dente. Drain well. Next you make the sauce by stir-frying garlic with some oil, then add in the chicken, Napa cabbage, mushroom, carrots and chicken broth. Stir in the noodles and mix well with the Lo Mein sauce and serve immedidately. For the full recipe, click here to get the recipe.
