Stir-fried chicken, vegetables, and rice noodles.
"Chow mein" is a Cantonese dish that consists of fried noodles (crispy or not) with vegetables and small pieces of meat (or shrimp) stir-fried and covered with a soy-based gravy. It is a very adaptable recipe, where the vegetables may be easily varied to suit your fancy or ... to clean out the refrigerator before they go stale.
Before you start
You will need a wok or frying pan.
Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the chicken warm while the vegetables cook.
- Prepare the vegetables: Finely chop the green onions and garlic; cut the snow peas in half crosswise; cut the pepper into thin strips.
- Cook the rice sticks in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente, about 3 min. Rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process and drain thoroughly. Set aside.
- Cut the chicken into thin strips. Heat half of the canola oil and the sesame oil in a frying-pan or wok. Add the chicken pieces and sauté over high heat 4-5 min until golden on all sides. Season with salt and pepper. Take the pieces out of the wok, then set them aside on the warmed serving plate in the oven.
- Add the remaining canola oil to the wok. Stir in the green onions and garlic. Cook 1 min, then add the snow peas and pepper strips. Sauté 4 min with frequent stirring. Cover and cook 2 min. Add the soybean sprouts.
- Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour the sauce mixture over the vegetables, then stir to coat well. Add the chicken and noodles, then toss well and heat through, 2-3 min. Serve hot.
