Chicken Chow Mein

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post as I have been a quite busy not blog related but I have managed some recipes to sure be easy and yummy.

Like anyone else I am a big fan of fast food and takeaway McDonalds, Pizza hut, KFC you name it. I am a big fan of Chinese food but not a big fan of the hefty price tag associated with it and not mentioning the salt content. To satisfy my Chinese food craving I tried to find a recipe for a chow mein which was simple, easy and would not break the bank. And I was not disappointed with the recipe I found from the Chinese chef Ken Hom  . I adapted by adding the recipe with some shreds of chorizo and the chilli giving some added heat to the dish.

Method:

  1. Add the shreds of the chicken to the marinade of 20mins.
  2. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions and soak in cold water so it stopped cooking further
  3. In a wok or bigger pan add some vegetable oil and cook the chicken for 2-5 minutes till it’s cooked. Then set aside.
  4. Pan fry the spring onions, pepper, onion, chorizo, green beans and bean sprouts for a couple of minutes. Then set aside.
  5. Drain the noodles from the water and fry the noodles for a few minutes. Add the remaining cooked chicken and vegetables and add the marinade to the pan.

Serve.

How do you cook your chow mein, I would like to hear your tips?

Note: I cooked the noodles and vegetables in batches especially if cooking for more than one person, unless you have a good wok.
