Easy Chicken Chow Mein

June 23, 2011

Chicken Chow Mein is an ubiquitous item on Chinese menus. Everyone loves it, but who doesn't like chicken and noodles? I have changed the classic recipe a little by omitting cabbage and bean sprouts (my own personal taste) and added vibrancy to the dish by including bright green snow peas. I would also add some minced red chili for a spicier touch. Serve this dish on its own or with rice.
