Chicken Chow Mein Vs Chicken Lo Mein

A few days back I have shared Chicken Lo mein, if you haven’t checked it go check it first, Chow mein means Stir-fried noodles whereas Lo mein means Tossed noodles. The texture is crispy while in lo mein the texture is Soft. Both are Chinese dishes made with Egg noodles – wheat flour with egg. That’s all for now.

Chicken Chow Mein – Sauces

The game changer of this dish is the combination of all the sauces like Oyster Sauce, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, pepper and cornflour/cornstarch.

Chicken Chow Mein Variations

I know that after having chicken for quite some time, it gets boring. So, in that case, you can simply switch the chicken with shrimp or mutton, and that’s why this dish is so versatile. You can also make some changes to the vegetable part – add mushrooms, bell peppers or use chicken thighs instead of breasts.

Chicken Chow Mein – What type of Noodles to use

From childhood, I like to make it with ramen noodles, because it saves my time, even though sometimes my mom makes it with traditional noodles (Buy it!) that are first soaked in warm water for 5-6 minutes, then rinse with cold water and finally adding some tablespoons of oil at the end, so that it does not stick together when stir frying.
