Chicken Lo Mein


Chicken Lo Mein is one of my favorite options when I order take out, but I don't get it often and never really thought I could make anything comparable at home.  While making some pasta  for dinner recently, I noticed a recipe for Chicken Lo Mein printed on the back of the Mueller's box.  I hadn't really considered making a homemade version but was excited when I saw how easy it was, so I had to give it a try.  I had a bit of confidence since I had made General Tso's Chicken and Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken a while ago and they turned out amazing. The original recipe calls for sliced beef and beef broth, but I changed it to chicken.



First I sliced the chicken into thin strips, and heated it in a large skillet until it was fully cooked.


I removed the chicken from the pan, then broke spaghetti into smaller pieces and cooked it in olive oil for a few minutes, until the spaghetti was slightly browned.


After a few minutes, I added the green pepper, onion, chicken bouillon, water, teriyaki sauce and garlic powder.  I let the mixture heat to a boil then covered it.


After 15 minutes, the Chicken Lo Mein was ready.  I stirred the mixture every few minutes while it cooked to prevent the noodles from sticking to the pan.


It turned out amazing!  I never suspected that simply chicken broth and teriyaki sauce made such a great flavor--this really compared to take out lo mein and I am hooked.  Since the recipe used a whole box of pasta, this made enough to last my husband and I several days.  Chicken Lo Mein made a great dinner and an easy lunch with leftovers.  Now I just need to conquer egg rolls!
