Chicken Chow Mein


When you're looking for an easy dish for summer afternoon or to use up leftovers, I'd suggest a stir-fry of sorts. Chicken chow mein happens to be one of my favorite. 

It's a fairly simple recipe to prepare. Here's what you'll need.

Ingredients:

Sesame oil
Chinese noodles
Vegetables (I used celery, broccoli, carrots, onions)
Cilantro
Limes (wedged)
Soy Sauce
Chicken breast (sliced into small chunks)
Ginger


Directions:

• Fry your onions, celery and carrots in a wok using the sesame oil until they start to get soft. Start to boil a pot of water for the noodles.
• Add the broccoli to the vegetable mix (it cooks a bit faster, and there is nothing worse than soggy broccoli)
• Add the noodles to the boiling water. Cook for as long as the packet says.
• Marinate the chicken in a bowl with salt, pepper and ginger.
• Remove vegetables, turn the heat up and fry the chicken. Make sure the temperature is high enough so the chicken is cooked quickly and becomes crispy, rather than boiling in it's juices on a lower temp.
• Drain the noodles and pour some sesame oil on them so they don't stick together.
• Arrange the noodles on a serving dish, making a dip in the center. Pour the veggies into that dip, making another dip. Pour the chicken into the final dip. Garnish with cilantro.


Bon Appetit!
