Chicken Lo-Mein



If you have not notice already, I am a big fan of Asian cuisine.  Tonight's dinner is Chicken Lo-Mein with mushroom, carrots, broccoli, water chestnuts, snow peas and Asian egg noodles.  As usual I like to use Allrecipes.com for recipe inspirations and I got this recipe which I modified at Allrecipes.com: Chicken Lo Mein.  Also, I see that some people like to use spaghetti or linguini for the noodles.  And notice that the broccoli and noodles are done as part of the preparation before cooking the meal.  Plus you have the option of marinated the meat for up to an hour in the fridge, since they are thinly sliced, I don't bother in marinating the meat.  However, you will find in this recipe that I do dress the meat and then brown it.  The sugar in the marinade helps out int he browning process.  Also instead of chopping the ginger, I always grate it right into the pot or bowl for quickness.
