Chicken Lo Mein

There are many recipes that I have made before that you can replace and have a healthier homemade takeout like Sweet and Sour Chicken, and many others. But this Chicken Lo Mein we are making today is something different and I am sure you will like it.

What is Chicken Lo Mein?

Easy Chicken Lo Mein

Well, that’s an important question! Basically, Lo mein is a simplified traditional Chinese dish made with egg noodles. It contains all different vegetables and some type of seafood or meat, usually chicken, beef, pork, shrimp or wontons (Chinese dumpling). It can also be eaten with just vegetables.

Sauce Used in Lo Mein

We will use Soy sauce at the last when tossing the chicken and vegetables to get that slightly sweet and amazing flavor. Use sesame oil to cook the egg noddles so that the noodles did not stick together when the tossing of the ingredients will be done. Finally, hoisin sauce – is a thick, fragrant sauce commonly used in Chinese cuisine as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir-fries, or as a dipping sauce.

Authentic Chicken Lo Mein

This Chicken Lo Mein recipe is very versatile! You can use any vegetables you have handy like mushrooms, peppers, broccoli or whatever is there in your fridge. Just throw them all together and every time you change the vegetables you will get a different flavor. This can be actually good because you will not get bored, and changing vegetables will keep the tongue taste.

For the chicken part, you can use grilled chicken or any chicken leftover you have. Or simply replace chicken with beef for an amazing beef lo mein, pork or seafood like shrimp.

What is the difference between Lo Mein and Chow Mein?

The main difference between chow mein and lo mein is the methods used to make these stir-fry noodles are different. Both lo mein and chow mein use wheat-flour egg noodles. Lo mein noodles are boiled to softness and authentic chow mein noodles are fried to crispness. When it comes to nutrition value, both have pretty much the same, but the ingredients used when stir-frying decides the healthiness of both chow mein or lo mein dish.

  1. Very good. I added more hoisin sauce ( 1/2 c instead of 1/4 c) and it turned out ok. I like that it’s easy to substitute different vegetables and meat. It’s a great weekday dinner for this working mom!

    • Delicious dinner! I followed some of the other suggestions for extra flavor. I marinated the chicken and added garlic, ginger and sesame oil for sauteeing. I also increased the hoisin sauce to 1/2 cup. Thank you for the recipe!

  2. My husband, my son and I absolutely LOVED this recipe! It was easy to make, smelled great, and it was devoured at dinner. Thankfully I had made enough with some left over, which I planned to pack in my son’s lunch the next day, but that was foiled as he ate up every last bit after his hockey practice! This recipe will be a regular from now on in our household!

    • Yes of course! Add little oil to the pan and saute ginger, minced garlic, and chopped onion before adding the broccoli and bell pepper.
      Hope this helps!

  3. Just made this as veggie low main. I used carrots, green peppers, baby Bella mushrooms, sugar snap peas and red onions. Very good. I did sauté the veggies in canola and sesame oil with ground ginger and garlic for a little extra flavor. I will make again and try chicken or beef.

  4. I found it extremely difficult to add the chicken in with the vegetables. It was hard to make sure the chicken was cooked properly with the veg in there already. I would definitely suggest cooking the chicken in a separate pan. At the end it tasted fine but just kind of blah. Do you have any suggestions and how to add more flavor? My husband would like more heat but I don’t. What could I add to his half to add more heat in my have to add more flavor ?

  5. OMG soooo good!!! We doubled everything and used edamame instead of snow peas since the store was out of snow peas. This will be added to our rotation. And I sent to friends to try!

  6. Very easy and really good! I used Chinese 5-Spice on my raw chicken, plus more hoisin sauce and added ginger. Will definitely make again!

  7. Really good. I added onions,garlic, ginger and since I couldn’t find Lo mien noodles I used spaghetti noodles. Turned out great. I marinated and precooked the chicken.

  8. I use Ramen noodles which aren’t as big as the lo mein or spaghetti noodles. I don’t use the little packet of seasoning in the lo mein, I boil the noodles in it.
