Directions

  1. Whisk soy sauce, corn starch, and sesame oil together in a large bowl until smooth; add chicken strips and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Combine chicken broth, oyster sauce, and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet. Cook and garlic in hot oil for 30 seconds; add marinated chicken. Cook and stir until browned and no longer pink in the center, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove chicken mixture to a plate. Cook and stir bok choy, zucchini, snap peas, and carrot in the hot skillet until softened, about 2 minutes. Return noodles and chicken mixture to the skillet. Pour broth mixture into noodle mixture; cook and stir until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Serve garnished with green onions.

This is amazingly flavorless in a way that defies physics, cooking and all reason. I dumped in an entire bottle of teriyaki sauce & a cup of peanuts to attempt to coax it back to life, but nothing could be done; our dinner had flatlined.

I made this for dinner last night and it must have been very good because there was none left by the time I got around to eating! Everyone loved it. I added a little fresh, finely minced ginger with the garlic because we all love ginger. I used a 10 oz package of noodles as that is the size they came in. When making this don't over cook the noodles or you will end up with mush. 4 - 5 minutes is all they take. Have everything chopped and prepped as this comes together really fast and there is no time to stop and measure or chop.

To all those who say this meal doesn't have very much flavor, I want to remind you that chow mien is a mild dish with subtle flavors. It is not a heavily spiced or spicy dish. I prepared this dish exactly as written being very careful with accuracy in measuring. I followed the preparation as written. The chicken was very flavorful and moist. I did salt it slightly after browning it in the pan. The veggies added the right amount of crunch and sweetness. The flavor was subtle but I thought it was very flavorful. I cooked the noodles 5 minutes, and after assembling all the ingredients together, I brought the broth to a boil, then turned off the burner and let the noodle mixture sit for about 5 minutes. This let them absorb most of the liquid, which made them just the right consistency and the sauce thicker. This is the best chow mein recipe I have ever tasted. Thanks
