Chicken Chow Mein


prep 0:10       total 0:34


4 to 5 servings



12 oz. oriental noodles **
8 oz. boneless chicken breasts, sliced thinly (freezing for about 20 minutes make this task easier)
3 tbsp. soy sauce, divided
1 tbsp. rice vinegar
1 tbsp. sesame oil
4 tbsp. olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 oz. snow peas, trimmed
2 oz. ham, finely sliced
1-1/2 to 2 tbsp. oyster sauce
4 green onions, finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste


Cook noodles according to package directions. Rinse under cold water, and set aside.

After you slice the chicken, place it in a bowl with 2 tsp of soy sauce, the rice vinegar and sesame oil. Toss to coat. Heat half the olive oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. When the oil is nice and hot, add the chicken mixture. Stir fry for 2 minutes, then transfer the chicken to a plate and keep warm.

Wipe the pan out and heat the remaining olive oil. Stir in the garlic, snow peas, and ham. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the drained noodles to the pan, and continue to stir fry till the noodles are heated through, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining soy, the oyster sauce, and season with salt and pepper to taste (you may find you don't need salt). Add the chicken and any juices back to the pan, then add the green onions. Give a final stir and serve immediately.
