Try this restaurant-worthy all-in-one dish, Chicken Chow Mein! Deliciously flavorful and so easy to make!

Try this all-in-one dish, Chicken Chow Mein! Deliciously flavorful and so easy to make! | www.foxyfolksy.com Chow Mein, the classic stir-fried egg noodles, is definitely one of the most popular Chinese dishes in and outside China. This chicken Chow Mein recipe is actually inspired from Marc of No Recipes. I changed some of the ingredients like adding hoisin sauce and omitting the potato starch and Shaoxing wine. The truth is I do not have both so I thought I would improvise.

No biggie but if you are more health conscious then go skinless. However, if you don’t want to remove the skin, at least remove the fatty parts. These are only good if fried  to a crisp (if eaten in moderation) but turn chewy otherwise.

I cooked it a few hours earlier, took these photos, cover the skillet with the lid and put it inside the oven and kept it warm at 50°C until it was time to serve. The resting time actually did it good as it gave the flavors time to set in and blend better. Just give it a good toss before serving.

Ingredients
  • CHICKEN MARINADE
  • 500 grams chicken thigh, deboned and cut into bite sizes
  • 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • SAUCE
  • 5 Tablespoon water
  • 4 Tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 5 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 big carrot, julienned
  • 300 grams uncooked Chow Mein noodles (Chinese egg noodles)
  • 1 bunch Pak choi, cut diagonally (1-2cm thick)
  • 2 stalks green onions, cut into halves and then into 2 inch long slices
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the chicken marinade. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it marinate for 15-30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook noodles in water as per package instructions but reduce cooking time by 1 minute. Transfer to a colander and rinse the noodles with cold water to avoid from cooking further and sticking together. Drain well and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the sauce.
  4. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the marinated chicken by spreading them in one layer and cooking each side for 3 minutes or until golden. Remove chicken fro oil and set aside.
  5. In the same skillet with oil, add the garlic and cook for a minute or until limp. Add carrots and cook until almost tender
  6. Add the noodles and sauce. Mix until well combined. Cover and lower heat to medium-low. Let it cook for another 3 minutes. Add the pak choi, green onions, and the chicken. Mix and cook for another minute.
  7. Transfer to a serving dish and serve.
Notes
This recipe can be easily divided for half the yield.
