Chicken Chow Mein

Serves: 2
Total Calories: 746


6 ounces thin egg noodles
4 tablespoons olive oil divided
3 green onions
8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast halves cut into bite siezed pieces
10 to 12 ounces stir fry vegetables fresh or frozen and thawed
1/2 cup sliced water chestnut
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 to 3 tablespoons


1. Cook the egg noodles until slightly firmer than al dente. Drain well.
2. Place 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large frying pan. Tilt the pan so the oil covers the bottom. Add the noodles and cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes.
3. To turn the noodles over, place the bottom of a large plate on top of the cooking noodles. Carefully flip both the pan and plate upside down—the noodles will be stuck together on top of the plate.
4. Return the pan to the burner, and let the noodles slide off the plate back into the pan.
5. Cook the bottom of the noodles another 3 to 4 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
6. Cut the green onions into thirds.
7. Heat the remaining oil in a wok or deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook 2 minutes while stirring frequently.
8. Add the vegetables and all of the remaining ingredients. Cook another 3 minutes, continuing to stir frequently.
9. Divide the noodles on two dinner plates. Top with the stir-fried chicken and vegetables, and enjoy!

Important tip
Egg noodles tend to stick together even more so than regular pasta, so be prepared to add the cooked noodles to the pan immediately after draining them.
