I have actually had today’s recipe for one pot chicken lo mein ready to go for a while. Unfortunately, it kept getting bumped for other recipes that were more timely. However, maybe that was a good thing because this recipe is perfect to make for the new year.
This dish is light and includes lots of veggies. They are all chopped to the same size and helps make this dish look pretty too. I did kind of cheat by usig baby carrots and just chopped them in half.
This dish is so delicious! I was actually surprised at how wonderful it really was.
Also, it can be all made in one pot in about 30 minutes. I love one pot dishes! It just helps me out so there is less work on cleaning up when I’m done cooking.
