This Easy Chicken Lo Mein is a great meal to toss together when you are short on time and long on hungry!
How many possible ways can there be to cook this little bird? And how many times a week can I serve it to my family before they revolt?
The versatile nature of chicken and its low cost make it a very popular protein option for dinner. So sometimes you just have to get creative when it comes to
disguising preparing it. 🙂
Even my kids will gobble it up this Easy Chicken Lo Mein (vegetables included, believe it or not!) and it tastes great as leftovers the next day.
Anytime we get takeout from Red Ginger (our local and most favorite Chinese food restaurant) I order the lo mein. I really prefer the soft, flavorful noodles over all the fried and sauced entrees.
Give me a big bowl of this easy Chicken Lo Mein and some cream cheese wontons and I’m a happy girl! I think making my own fried cream cheese wontons will be the next item on my TO DO recipe list. Yummy!
