Chicken Lo Mein

I love making my favorite take out dishes at home. They taste so much better and not a lot of time to make! Besides fried rice, lo mein is my second favorite take out dish!

I used a mix of pre chopped veggies to keep it super easy. You can use any type of vegetable in this recipe. Frozen vegetables can also be substituted.

I start by sautéing the chicken first then the vegetables. While the chicken and veggies saute I mix together the sauce and boil the noodles. Once everything is cooked it gets tossed together. I serve the lo mein with a sprinkle of sesame seeds for garnish and dig in!

  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar

  • I am looking for the lo mein receipt that uses frozen vegetables sauce and noodles. Have got it off of google before and I can’t find it. All it was was chicken frozen veggies and sauce don’t remember how much to put in and what kind of sauce?

    • Hi!

      You can always follow this recipe and substitute frozen veggies and noodles.

    Ingredients call for garlic and ginger but the directions don’t mention them at all

    • Hi Donna,

      Sorry about that! I have corrected the recipe. The ginger gets added with the other vegetables and the garlic gets added after they are tender.

      Thanks for letting me know!!
