Introduction

The words chow mein mean 'stir-fried noodles', and was first put together in the USA in the 1920's. There are two main kinds of Chow Mein: Steamed, and Crispy, also known as Hong Kong-style. It is a stir-fried dish consisting of noodles, meat (chicken being most common but pork, beef, shrimp or tofu sometimes being substituted), onions and celery.

Steps to make:

Chow Mein

  1. In a small mixing bowl, use a whisk to combine oyster sauce, granulated sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce, chicken broth and cornstarch. Set aside.

  2. Cook your noodles according to package instructions then drain, rinse with cold water and set aside.

  3. Heat a large wok or pan with olive oil over medium-heat. Cut your chicken breasts into bite-sized strips and cook them in the oil until golden brown. Remove strips and set aside.

  4. Add carrots, cabbage and pressed garlic and saute for a few minutes until veggies are slightly softened and the cabbage is a bit translucent.

  5. Add chicken and noodles back into the pan. Pour sauce over the top and continue cooking all the ingredients together for another 2 minutes.

  6. Garnish  with chopped green onions and serve the noodles straight from the pan and piping hot.
