Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"Kids love this, and we always get rave reviews and requests for the recipe. You can add additional vegetables as desired (broccoli, snow peas, etc.), though you may then need to increase the amount of peanut sauce if you add significant amounts of veggies."

  1. Bring 2 quarts lightly salted water to a boil. Cook chow mein in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Whisk soy sauce, peanut butter, 4 teaspoons vegetable oil, sugar, vinegar, and 4 teaspoons sesame oil together in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chicken, garlic, and ginger in hot oil until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove chicken mixture with a slotted spoon to a bowl, retaining drippings in the skillet.
  4. Heat an additional 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon sesame oil in the skillet with the drippings; saute mushrooms until fragrant, 15 to 30 seconds.
  5. Return the chicken to the skillet; add drained chow mein noodles, bean sprouts, and green onion. Toss mixture to distribute chicken and vegetables throughout the noodles. Drizzle peanut sauce over the noodles and toss to coat; cook until sauce is warmed, about 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat and garnish with cilantro.

Honestly, the only chow mein noodle that I’m familiar with is the fried type that you buy in the can. I hope you know what type noodles the recipe calls for because I couldn’t find them and end...

Used spaghetti noodles added pepper flakes. Red bell or shredded carrot would add some color. Tasty dish.I would make again.

The peanut sauce, the sesame oil and the cilantro are the keys. You can change the meat (pork might be nice), the vegetables (I added broccoli and carrots) or the noodles (I used whole wheat spa...

This recipe looks great, but it's not the one pictured

I didn't have green onion and cilantro, but will make sure I have it the next time. It tasted very good (the BF loved it!). I also substituted tofu cubes for the chicken, as the BF is vegetari...

This is so good. Used "Canton" noodles -- which are the yellow curly dried ones that come in the clear pack. Even the kids love it!

This is definitely one of our favorites!! It will be on our meal rotation for sure! We added a tbsp of butter to the mix when we sauteed the mushrooms. Just felt like it needed a bit more liquid...
