Ingredients

  • 10 oz lo mein noodles (dried) or spaghetti noodles
  • 1 cup carrots shredded
  • 1 cup cabbage shredded
  • 1 bell pepper sliced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 pieces chicken tenderloins
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2-3 spring green onions sliced

Sauce

  • 3 tbsp oyster (flavored) sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup chicken broth more if needed
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce optional

Instructions

  • In a pot, bring water to boil and add lo mein noodles. Make sure noodles are completely submerged in water. Cook time will vary based on package instruction. 
  • Once noodles are done, remove promptly and drain water, then rinse noodles with cold water (this will prevent noodles from continuing to cook and sticking to each other). Do not overcook noodles. 
  • Prep/cut bell peppers, shredded carrots, shredded cabbage, garlic, green onions and chicken. (Start this step while waiting for noodles to boil to save time!)
  • Prepare sauce by combining all sauce ingredients into a bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Heat skillet and add vegetable oil. Once oil is hot, add garlic and chicken slices. Sauté chicken until it is done, flipping occasionally. Add sauce. Bring to a boil.
  • Add noodles and gently stir them into the sauce and coat them evenly with sauce (much easier if using a paid of tongs). Add bell peppers, shredded carrots and shredded cabbage and continue to combine until they are all coat in sauce. 
  • Add additional chicken broth if noodles seem too dry. Continue to combine for another 30 seconds or so, or until sauce thickens and everything are well coated with sauce. Avoid overcooking noodles.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with green onions. Serve and enjoy!
