  1. Mix chicken with egg white, 2 teaspoons cornstarch, and sesame oil in a bowl.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add egg noodles; cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Drain. Spread out on paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a wok over medium heat. Cook and stir noodles in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Stir chicken into the wok; cook, stirring frequently, until white, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl using a slotted spoon.
  5. Pour chicken stock into the wok; stir in spring onions, soy sauce, rice wine, white pepper, and black pepper.
  6. Mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch and water together in a small bowl until smooth. Pour into the wok. Stir in oyster sauce. Add chicken and bean sprouts; cook and stir until chicken is tender and sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve over noodles.

I didn’t have a wok so I used a frying pan. And I replaced the white pepper for garlic. It came out great! Got lots of compliments from the family.

I’ve been looking for a recipe comparable to restaurant style Cantonese Chow Mein. This is a very tasty recipe. I followed it basically to a tee (except for an addition of broccoli, carrots, and...

My kids loved this! It doesn't taste exactly like how it does at a restaurant but it's pretty tasty. Don't do what I did-I just left the noodles to cool in the strainer and it got stuck in one...

Yup, I made changes. Instead of frying noodles, I cheated and bought a bag of crispy chow mein noodles. To the onions and sprouts, I added sliced shallot, a few sliced mushrooms, thinly sliced c...
