Chicken Lo Mein

Another recipe from Annie's Eats. I loved the lo mein noodles! Definitely use them if you can find them. I also used hoisin sauce instead of oyster sauce (not a fan of oyster) and frozen stir fry mix instead of fresh veggies. I wasn't happy with the stir fry mix I chose, so in the future I'll probably be using the same mix I used for the ginger beef stir fry.

6 oz. lo mein noodles
1 tbsp. hoisin sauce
2 tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
Pinch red pepper flakes
1/2 tbsp. canola oil
1 medium chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 pkg frozen stir fry mix containing onion, bell pepper, snow peas and mushrooms, thawed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. sesame oil

Bring a pot of water to boil. Cook the lo mein noodles according to the package directions. Drain and set aside. In the meantime, make the sauce by combining the oyster sauce, soy sauce, chicken broth and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Whisk well and set aside.

Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and cook until browned and cooked through. Add in the vegetables and cook just until tender-crisp. Add in the garlic and saute just until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add the sauce to the pan, and then the cooked lo mein noodles. Toss the mixture well to coat everything. Drizzle with the sesame oil and toss once more. Serve immediately.
