When I get a meal from Panda Express, I always go for chow mein for my side. Today, I have a recipe for a homemade chicken chow mein. Since this version includes chicken, it can be used as a main dish. However, you can always use out the chicken and use it as a side too!
If you can’t get you hands on some chow mein noodles. Now when I say chow mein noodles, it’s not the crunchy cooked kind. It’s the kind that looks like pasta noodles that need to be cooked.
You can use lo mein, thin spaghetti or spaghetti noodles as a substitute if you can’t find chow mein noodles. However, the chow mein noodles or lo mein noodles are the best choice. They have a different taste and texture. So, they are the better choice if it’s possible to buy them. I couldn’t find the chow mein noodles so I grabbed a box of lo mein noodles from my local Walmart.
This homemade chicken chow mein includes the standard carrots and cabbage. I used a bag of already shredded cabbage for this. I also puchased a bag of julienne carrots to make this. Both of these already prepared ingredients can help save you time.Print
