Chicken Chow Mein


What’s for dinner? 20-minute Chicken Chow Mein. It is my go-to recipe when I need a quick weeknight dinner option that is healthy and delicious too. Flavorful chow mein noodles, tender chicken, and yummy veggies get tossed in a coating of a homemade sauce that hits all the umami notes. I love using chicken thighs for this chow mein recipe because they stay tender and juicy while cooking. Feel free to use chicken breast if you prefer leaner meat. 

Make sure you have all the ingredients prepared and ready to toss in as once you start cooking, it only takes 10 minutes of active cooking time. With this recipe, you start by whisking up the sauce. Cook and drain the egg noodles. Heat oil in a wok and stir-fry the chicken along with 1 tablespoon of the prepared sauce. Stir-fry the veggies and toss in the cooked noodles along with green onions, and the remaining sauce. Cook just for another minute and serve immediately. Delicious weeknight dinner!
