Make a memory, making this Chicken Lo Mein. So the other night, I stayed with my daughter Raychel. She decided that she wanted us to make a lo mein meal. We had a blast putting everything together and getting it on the table. I enjoyed the mother-daughter evening making this with her. Still, there were a few things that I decided needed to happen, the first being when Raychel and I were making this together, we just threw stuff in and didn’t do any measuring, which as an ex-restaurant owner/chef, you tend to get into the terrible habit of not measuring things out. Kind of like driving a car; when you get behind the wheel, you just don’t think about it. So a few days later, in my kitchen, I went ahead and re-created the recipe with only a few tweaks, and I did what I always do when I’m creating a recipe I videoed it so that I could go back and see how much of the ingredients I was using.
So, here is my recipe for chicken lo mein. I hope you enjoy making this just as much as I enjoyed the creative process with my beautiful daughter.
- Two chicken breast cut into small pieces
- Olive oil for the bottom of a pan
- One package lo mein noodles (cooked)
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 cups diced carrots
- 3 cups broccoli (cut small)
- 1/2 cup chopped almonds or cashews
- 5 tablespoons brown sugar
- Place a sauté pan on the stove at medium heat and coat the pan’s bottom with olive oil.
- Cut two chicken breasts into small pieces in place into the warm pan to see her both sides.
- Boil water and cook the lo mein noodles as per directions on the package.
- Once the chicken is browned, add 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, 1 tablespoon honey, 2 cups of diced carrots, 3 cups of broccoli pieces, 1/2 cup chopped almonds, and 5 tablespoons of sugar.
- Stir well, cover, and cook for approximately 15 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
