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 by Marc’s from 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.

Yes, exactly this one in the pictures. I cooked it a few hours earlier, took these photos, cover the skillet with the lid and put it in 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.
