Chicken chow mein

Chicken chow mein

One of the most-sold dishes in Chinese takeaways, but why pick up the phone when you can make an even nicer chicken chow mein at home?

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

What you need:

  • 240g Blue Dragon Medium Egg Noodles (4 nests)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and finely sliced (or any other protein)
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 red peppers, finely sliced
  • 200g bean sprouts
  • 50g shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • Spring onions, sliced
  • 2 sachets Blue Dragon Chow Mein Stir Fry Sauce
  • Blue Dragon Dark Soy Sauce, to taste

What you do:

  1. Cook the Blue Dragon noodles according to the pack instructions, until 'al dente' (i.e. they still have 'bite'). Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in the wok; add the ginger and then the garlic. Stir fry to allow the aroma to be released.
  3. Add the peppers, mushrooms, spring onion and chicken and stir fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the bean sprouts followed by the noodles.
  5. Add the Blue Dragon Chow Mein Stir fry Sauce and stir fry until heated through. Add Blue Dragon Soy Sauce to taste. Serve immediately.
