Chicken Lo Mein Stir Fry

I always loved it when my mom made stir fry at home. She had a big red wok and it was the easiest way to get all of us kids to eat our veggies. I don’t have a big red wok and I did not have a large stock of vegetables on hand when I made this, but that didn’t make it taste any less awesome. Feel free to change up the veggies to suit your own tastes. My mom would use snap peas, and baby carrots, which I love!


Vegetable Oil, as needed
2 breasts Chicken
6 oz. Lo Mein noodles
4 c Cabbage, sliced
1 can Water Chestnuts, drained
2 c Green Beans
3 Tbs Soy Sauce
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1/8 tsp Ginger, ground


Saute cabbage in oil until tender, remove from pan and set aside. Add green beans and water chestnuts to pan. Season with soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Saute until green beans are cooked yet still have some firmness to them. Remove from pan and set aside. Add chicken to the pan and cook until done. While the chicken is cooking, cook lo mein according to instructions on package. Once the chicken and lo mein are done cooking. Return everything to the pan. Stir well to combine and season with additional soy sauce or spices if desired. Keep everything moving quickly , and use plenty of oil, if you are not using a non-stick pan or wok.

  1. This looks like something I can try at home! Do you guys use ginger in your cooking often? We use that quite a lot in Asian cooking and I love ginger! We also eat a lot of ginger stuff during the month after we give birth – also known as confinement month :p

    • We don’t cook with ginger too often around here. Not many recipes call for it so I get excited when I come across some that do. It has so many great health benefits and I don’t think we take advantage of it enough. It certainly adds a unique flavor to dishes.
