Chicken Lo Mein

Since baby #2 arrived, I am all about quick and easy meals.  Heck, I was all about them before baby #2!  I switched up this recipe I found on BlogHer a bit, because we just love good flavor at our house and it looked a tad bland.  It was definitely a speedy dish and tasted delicious in spite of its appearance!  (Let’s be honest…. the pictures look like it’s a ho-hum kind of meal….. this is probably why it took me so long to get around to actually trying it!)One Pot Wonder Chicken Lo Mein

Chicken Lo Mein

  • 4-5 boneless skinless chicken thighs thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • dash of salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil if necessary
  • 1 bag baby carrots halved the long way
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into thin slices
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 5 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 12 ounces whole-wheat noodles
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan

Place chicken in skillet (it should create enough liquid of its own, but you can add some olive oil if necessary), sprinkle with pepper, poultry seasoning & salt.  Cook over medium heat until done.  While it’s cooking, use your spatula to cut it up into small chunks.  (You could cut it up before cooking, but we think this is an easier/time saving method)

While your chicken is cooking, place carrots, bell pepper, onion, garlic, soy sauce, garlic powder, cornstarch, red pepper flakes and chicken broth into a large pot and bring to a boil.

Once your liquid is boiling, add in the noodles, cover and simmer 15 minutes.  When your chicken is done cooking, go ahead and add that to the pot as well.  Once your 15 minutes are up and most of the liquid is gone, stir in the parmesan cheese and serve!  It’s got a little Asian flare to it and trust me when I say it really is better than it looks. 🙂  One Pot Wonder Chicken Lo Mein1
