The first step is to get your water boiling. Then velveting your chicken by adding your sliced chicken to a bowl with all of the velveting marinade ingredients. Set aside while you are prepping your veggies and mixing your chinese brown sauce ingredients in a seperate bowl while waiting for your water to boil.
Once your water starts to boil, add the Lo mein noodles which only take 4 minutes to cook. Then heat up your wok. Once heated add your sesame oil, 1 tbs of garlic and your chicken. Remember this will all cook very fast. Cook your chicken until it starts to brown about 2-3 minutes. Then add your veggies.
Your veggies will only take 2-3 minutes to cook. While they are cooking in the wok, drain your lo mein noodles.
Finally, add your lo mein noodles and pour over your chinese brown sauce. Give a good mix and your dish is ready to serve.
Remember if you cannot find Lo Mein Noodles you can also use Yakisoba Noodles or Spaghetti noodles.
Other Vegetables to use in your Chicken Lo Mein Recipe
red & green peppers
snow peas & green beans
Velveting your chicken is the traditional method used in Chinese cooking to create incredibly tender chicken and beef. The method involves using cornstarch or baking soda to tenderize your meat. I always use cornstarch because it also acts as a thickener for your sauce when cooking.
