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.

No need to order 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.

  • CHOW MEIN NOODLES (THE PASTA KIND)
  • CANOLA OIL
  • CHICKEN
  • ONION

Start by boiling noodles according to package directions and drain.

Next, in a skillet or wok, heat oil over medium. Then add the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken 3-4 minute per side until browned.

Add in the onion, carrot, and celery. Cook them for 3-4 minutes until just softened. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.

Now it’s time to 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 the green onion and cook for 1-2 more minutes until the green onion and cabbage wilt. Then it’s time to enjoy!
