Lo Mein Delight: A Chicken and Veggie Stir-Fry

  • Chicken: Opt for chicken thighs to elevate the dish with their enhanced flavor and juiciness. However, chicken breasts can serve as a suitable alternative.
  • Vegetables: Customize your stir-fry with an assortment of your favorite vegetables. In this rendition, carrots, red bell peppers, broccoli, and snow peas are featured, though feel free to incorporate additional favorites such as mushrooms, spinach, or water chestnuts.
  • Sauce: Crafted with just two ingredients – soy sauce and hoisin sauce – the stir-fry sauce imparts a delightful balance of savory flavors.

Distinguishing Lo Mein from Chow Mein

Lo Mein and Chow Mein, while often confused, differ primarily in noodle preparation. Lo Mein, or ‘tossed noodles,’ involves cooking the noodles separately before combining them with other ingredients, while Chow Mein, or ‘fried noodles,’ integrates stir-frying the noodles alongside the other components.

Spicing Up Lo Mein

For those craving an added kick, consider incorporating spicy elements such as sriracha, crunchy garlic chili oil, or chili garlic sauce to elevate the flavor profile of your Lo Mein.

Storing & Freezing Leftovers

Leftover Lo Mein can be refrigerated for 3-4 days in an airtight container. For extended storage, freeze the dish in freezer-safe containers, ensuring proper labeling and dating. Frozen Lo Mein will maintain its quality for 2-3 months, with thawing recommended in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
