Chinese Meal - Chicken Chow Mein
Chow mein means stir-fried noodles. Shitake mushrooms have a wonderful flavour but if you can’t find them you could use sliced chestnut mushrooms instead.
This is an easy to cook Chinese Chicken Chow Mein recipe.
1 large chicken breast (approx 160g)
Mix together the soy sauce, sake and brown sugar and marinate the chicken for 10 minutes. Strain and reserve the marinade.
Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then set aside.
Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan and stir fry the chicken for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Heat the sesame oil in the wok. Add the garlic and stir fry for a few seconds. Add the shitake mushrooms, sugar snap peas, red pepper and baby corn, stirring occasionally for 4 minutes. Add the spring onions, courgette and beansprouts and continue to cook, stirring occasionally.
Add the chicken and noodles together with the marinade. Stir fry for one to two minutes or until the noodles are heated through.
