Ingredients Needed:

Cloves garlic, minced

Low-sodium soy sauce

Dark soy sauce

Low-sodium chicken broth

Oyster sauce

Cornstarch

Brown sugar

Black pepper

Rice vinegar

Sesame oil

Fresh ginger, grated

Sriracha sauce (optional, for spice lovers)

How To Make:

Cook the noodles according to the package instructions.

Combine the marinade ingredients in a small cup or bowl.

Cut the chicken into julienne strips and set aside. Slice all the vegetables.

In a large wok or skillet over high heat, pan-sear the chicken in 1 tablespoon of oil until lightly browned and fully cooked. Season with a sprinkle of salt while cooking. Remove the chicken and set aside, covered, to retain moisture.

In the same skillet, add ½ tablespoon of oil. Sauté the onion, mushroom, bell pepper, snow peas, and carrots until slightly tender.

Add the marinade sauce and cooked noodles to the skillet. Mix and cook for a couple of minutes. Then, add the cooked chicken and chopped green onion. Cook for an additional minute.

Remove from heat, sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top, and serve immediately.

Pro Tips:

Follow the noodle package instructions precisely to avoid overcooking.

Opt for low-sodium soy sauce to manage salt levels.

Ensure thin, even slices of veggies and meat for quick and uniform cooking.

For added heat, toss in crushed red pepper flakes.

Experiment with Beef Lo Mein if chicken isn’t available. Substitute regular soy sauce for dark soy sauce and hoisin sauce for oyster sauce if needed.
