Chicken Lo Mein

Need a quick and easy meal with very little clean up? Stir-Fry is the way to go! I have been fixing stir-fry for years now, but had never tried Lo Mein before. Essentially it’s stir-fry with noodles. I first spotted this recipe in a Kraft Food & Family magazine, and was drawn to it with the flavors that are created by bottled salad dressing and peanut butter.

This Chicken Lo Mein takes a little more time, with boiling the noodles, but is still an under 30 minute meal.  Prep the chicken and veggies ahead of time and you have even less time.

We love Summer, not only do we love all the fun activities and being outside, but we love all the fresh produce. It’s the perfect time to grab some extra veggies, cut them, and throw them in the freezer for those long Winter months that we don’t want to think about right now.

  1. What would you recommend for a dressing other than the asian sesame, my husband can't have anything with nuts or seeds. Thanks
    • Hi Debbie, I don't know all of the ingredients, so you will need to check the bottles. But I would suggest any Asian dressing, you could also try Soy Sauce. Hope that helps! Let us know if you have more questions. ~Liz
