I love it when I can find a good recipe to make at home instead of getting Chinese takeout. This Chicken Chow Mein recipe just happens to be just that.
There is no need to order chicken chow mein from my local Chinese take out when I have this simple and savory at home version.
Now, when the recipe calls for chow mein noodles, it’s not the crunchy crispy kind. It’s the pasta type stir fry ones. If you can’t find them at the store, good old ramen ones will do.
- 6 oz dry chow mein or ramen noodles (discard seasoning if included)
- 1 Tbsp canola oil
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite sized pieces
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
- 1/2 cup shredded carrot
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced celery, cut on an angle
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 1/4 cup green onion, sliced at an angle
- Boil noodles according to pkg directions and drain.
- In a skillet or wok, heat oil over medium. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook chicken 3-4 minute per side until browned.
- Add in the onion, carrot, and celery. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
- Add in the cooked noodles and cabbage. Toss to combine.
- In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil. Pour mixture over the mixture in the skillet. Stir until everything is evenly coated.
- Add in the green onion and cook for 1-2 more minutes until green onion and cabbage is wilted. Serves 4-5.
