Serving: 2 to 4
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

For the chicken and marinade:
1/2 pound chicken breast, sliced
Pinch of salt
Pinch of white pepper
1 tablespoon rice wine
½ egg white
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon oil, for stir-frying

For the sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
4 tablespoons water
Pinch of white pepper

For the stir fried lo mein:
1 package (16 oz) lo mein noodles
1 tablespoon oil, for stir-frying
½ medium onion, sliced
4 shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
½ medium carrot, julienned
½ cup snap peas

Chicken Lo Mein Instructions

To marinate the chicken:
  • In a mixing bowl, place the chicken breast inside.
  • Season it with salt, white pepper, rice wine, egg white, and cornstarch slurry (1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 3 tablespoons of water). Marinate it for 15 minutes. (Both the egg white and cornstarch slurry are going to make the chicken extra tender.)
To combine the sauce:
  • In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, water, and white pepper. Whisk.
To cook the lo mein:
  • In a pot over high heat, bring water to a boil. Place the lo mein inside. Cook the lo mein for about 3 minutes until al dente.
  • Rinse with cold water to stop cooking. Drain.
To stir fry:
  • In a wok over high heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil and the chicken. Stir fry for about 4 minutes until completely cooked through. Remove.
  • In the same wok over high heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil. Place the onion, shiitake mushrooms, carrot, snap peas, and red bell pepper inside. Stir fry until aromatic for about 30 seconds. (What other ingredients you would like to put in the lo mein, please comment below and share with us!)
  • In the same wok, return the lo mein, chicken, and sauce. Stir fry everything together. Lastly, add the scallions.

When you cook lo mein at home, you can add lots of healthy vegetables and proteins inside. It makes a healthier and tastier choice. In my opinion, this is way better than takeout! What do you think?
