Evidently I’m now addicted to making my own Chinese takeout food.
After 10 years of not being able to eat Chinese food, I suddenly can’t get enough! I’ve actually had this recipe ready to go for a while now, ever since my whole week of Asian recipes. There just wasn’t enough time to share this one as well! Which is too bad since it might just be my favourite of all of them.
No – that lemon chicken is pretty much amazing. But so is this chicken chow mein. I can’t pick – I like food, and trying new recipes, and apparently making Chinese takeout!
The best part of this recipe though is that it is so incredibly easy! Fast, easy and absolutely delicious. You really don’t need much more from a recipe as far as I’m concerned. I’ve made this recipe at least three times now, which is already saying something about it. If a food blogger is making something three times in under a month you know it’s good. Because I don’t make a lot of things over and over again – always gotta be trying something new! Drives my family crazy. But they were very happy that this one was so good that I made it over and over again. And I will definitely continue to do so!
Plus, you can customize it to your liking. Don’t like those veggies? Use something else, or whatever you happen to have in the fridge. Different protein? Sure. I’ve made it with chicken, shrimp and beef and all of them were great. I think I’m partial to the chicken chow mein, but use whatever you prefer.
This chicken chow mein is so tasty. And so fast. And so easy. You definitely need to try it. So much better than takeout, I promise. I didn’t even think I liked chow mein – that’s how much better it is!
