I love making my favorite take out dishes at home. They taste so much better and take no time to make! This chow mein comes together in minutes. I saute chicken thighs until golden brown then toss them with cooked chow mein noodles, sauteed cabbage and carrots. Everything gets tossed in an easy stir fry sauce.

I like to serve this chow mein with egg rolls, potstickers or fried rice!

Tips for making chow mein

  • If you have trouble finding chow mein noodles you can substitute regular spaghetti noodles. You could also use any type of stir fried noodle or a package of Yakisoba noodles and discard the seasoning packet. Just make sure to boil the noodles for a couple minutes before adding them to the sauce.
  • You can always swap out whatever vegetables or protein you have on hand. You can add in bean sprouts, celery or bell peppers for added crunch.
