One Pot Chicken Lo Mein

I love when I find a good Chinese food restaurant. There are a couple really awesome places near my house, but it can get expensive to eat out. But we still need to eat Chinese food, right? As a bonus, three of my four kids ate and loved this!!

So, here’s my take on chicken lo mein.

I really like using thin spaghetti for this meal because it seems like just the right size. I have used linguini before, but it is difficult to cook and you really need to stir it a lot so it doesn’t stick together. Thin spaghetti makes this a super simple meal for any night of the week.

 

I found this super cool garlic press at a fun little kitchen store I came across. You can use it like a normal garlic press or put the garlic in the next spot over and slice it. For the mincing side, you can just put the garlic in without peeling it. I love garlic and this is going to make using it so much easier.

 

Ingredients:
1 lb thin spaghetti, uncooked
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 boneless/skinless chicken breast, chopped into thin slices
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 bunch green onions, cut into 3 inch strips
1/2 lb baby carrots, quartered lengthwise
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup lite soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon corn starch
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
4 cups chicken broth

To a large soup pot, add all ingredients being sure to add the uncooked pasta first.

Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, medium/low heat. Cook with the lid on for approximately 15 minutes stirring a couple times, or until the chicken is cooked and most of the broth is gone. The pasta should be cooked at this point. Let sit uncovered for a few minutes before serving.

Yield: 6 servings

*I originally found this recipe from thewholesomedish.com, but I have changed a few things to make it just right for my family.

    1. Becky, sorry that wasn’t clear. You put the uncooked pasta in the pot with everything else and it all cooks at the same time. It’s amazing! I’ll edit the post to make the directions more clear. Thanks! I hope you try it because it’s so yummy.
