Chicken Lo Mein

Jump to recipe

Chicken Lo Mein is something that we order frequently from chinese restaurants, but I have been wanting to create a healthier version at home for a long long time! Finally I decide to recreate it and make it my own! This recipe is so tasty and honestly sometimes this kind of Chinese food is comfort for me! It is so YUMMY! Also, it saves us some money for sure! One thing about Chicken Lo Mein that can be tricky is that it can be hard to find the right kind of noodles. A lot of times if I can’t find the right kind of noodle I will use ramen noodles. They work just as well. It’s not traditional, but they are delicious too!

The difference between Lo Mein and Chow Mein

Lo Mein means “tossed noodles”. Typically tossed in sauce. Like the sauce that I have made has a sweet and spicy element. Chow Mein means “fried noodles”. These are typically fried before you buy them. When you cook them you also cook them in oil to fry and crisp them up.

Make it how you want it!

One of my favorite things about lo mein is that you can really make it how you like it. Want it spicier? Add more Chili Sauce. Want it sweeter? Add more brown sugar or dark soy. Want a different vegetable? Swap it out for whatever you like. I have had this lo mein with broccoli, squash, asparagus, all kinds of different veggies! Switch it up and make it yours!
