Chicken Chow Mein (super fast)

Chicken Chow Mein (super fast) ~ Simple Food


This is a gentle wonderful tasting Chow Mein that is so quick and easy to make.
Saying that, most of the time is taken up making the stock so if you decided to buy in the stock it would be super quick.
As long as you stick to the basics of the recipe you can put your own spin on it, like buying in the stock, dark soy instead of light, steam the chicken and so on.
Anyway here it is, please try it and let me know what you think.


You will need;
450 Gm – Fresh Egg Noodles
5 tablespoons – Garlic Oil
