Hi there! My name is Natalya and I run the blog Momsdish. If you already follow me, you know I can’t get enough of easy meals that require simple ingredients and minimal clean-up. I can’t wait to share this recipe for chicken chow mein with you because it hits all the marks!

Chicken Chow Mein

Chow mein is a traditional Chinese dish made with egg noodles and stir-fried veggies. We love adding a protein and our favorite is chicken, but you can try different meat or tofu. This dish is pan-fried so the noodles get a nice crisp to them and then tossed in a yummy sauce. Chow mein is perfect for those nights when you don’t want to dirty too many pans or make a big mess of the kitchen. 

Chow mein gets its signature flavor from the thick, dark homemade sauce the noodles are tossed with. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and salty and makes putting down your chopsticks absolutely impossible.

Ingredients for Chow Mein:

  • Chow Mein Noodles: Chow mein noodles are made with wheat and egg. They are very similar to Italian pasta noodles and have a wonderful bite to them. Most grocery stores carry dry chow mein noodles in the Asian aisle. But, if you are lucky, you will find pre-cooked chow mein noodles in the refrigerated section that can be thrown straight into your pan.
  • Vegetables: Carrots, cabbage, green onions, and bean sprouts are the perfect combination of veggies to use for chow mein. However, they can easily be replaced with other veggies like bok choy, celery, broccoli, spinach, kale or baby corn. Feel free to get creative and use what you like or whatever you have hanging around in your fridge! 
  • Meats: Great quality chicken breasts are your best bet for slicing into chow mein-ready strips. If you like, feel free to swap chicken out for beef, shrimp or pork. 
    • Hot tip: Hosting vegetarians also? Use vegetable broth and set some of your noodles aside to toss them with cubes of baked tofu. 

Ingredients for the chicken chow mein.

The BEST Chow Mein Sauce:

The homemade chow mein sauce is amazing in this recipe! Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, oyster sauce, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and chicken broth to make the signature sweet and savory sauce that makes chow mein taste authentic.

How to Make Chow Mein:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine ingredients for chow mein sauce: oyster sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, chicken broth, and cornstarch. Set aside. 
  2. Cook noodles according to package instructions, set aside. 
  3. Heat a large wok or pan. Add a bit of oil to the pan and cook chicken until it’s golden brown. Remove chicken and set aside.
  4. Add carrots, cabbage and pressed garlic and saute for a few minutes until veggies are slightly softened. 
  5. Add chicken back to the pan, followed by cooked noodles and pour the sauce right on top. Cook for about 2 minutes, distributing all that saucy goodness around evenly.
  6. Add chopped green onions and remove from the heat. Serve hot!

    Delicious! Took a star away bc the recipe says shredded carrots, but the photos very clearly show julienne cut. I did it like the photos, and it definitely took over the few mins the recipe says. I put a cover over my pan to help them soften faster. Also, I would have liked for the recipe to show an estimated cooking time for the chicken for beginner cooks.

      Hi Norma, thank you for your feedback. We didn’t find that to be the case but you can add that to taste. Also, make sure you are using the same proportions for the rest of the recipe. For example, if using less noodles, the sauce can seem overwhelming.

    Love this recipe! Made it twice now, using chicken thighs the second time. I wanted more sauce so I doubled the sauce recipe but found it to be too strong. Maybe from the oyster sauce being doubled? Are the ingredients savory enough that I can just double the broth versus doubling all the sauce ingredients? What would you suggest to get more sauce while still getting the same great flavor? Thank you!

    Reply

      July 14, 2020

      Hi Reem, it is likely due to that being doubled. You might try 1 1/2 times the sauce.

    Best Asian cooking sauce I’ve found on the web!

    It’s hard to imagine a substitute for Sesame oil. That and ginger is what makes Asian food taste Asian. Same for the Worcestershire sauce. IMO

    Anyway, this recipe is so close to what I get at our Chinese restaurants in the Pacific NW. I’m cutting back on the sugar this time. I multiply the sauce recipe so I have sauce handy. Then pull out a tablespoon or two for what ever dish I’m making, during my “Asian week” of cooking. Same with ginger and garlic. Saves on the prep time.

    I made this yesterday with shrimps . I follow the recipe As it is but instead oyster sauce used Worcestershire and 1 tbsp of vinegar . It turned out well . I doubled the sauce because my middle has tumor in his brain stem due to that his left side inside and outside is weak so he can digest it easily . Recipe was great we really loved It I served as a side dish with beef and broccoli .

      I haven’t tried using Worcestershire but thanks for sharing that with us. I think should give that a try next time. I’m happy to know that you and your son enjoyed this recipe. Thank you for your wonderful review!

      Hi Joann, I haven’t personally tried a different oil but the usual substitutes are Olive oil, Perilla oil or avocado oil. Please share with us how it goes if you do an experiment.

    Hi Natasha and Natalya.
    Thank you for another great recipe ! I only had purple cabbage on hand and knowing that its a really bad time to go shopping i used it. The chow mein came out really pretty with the purple cabbage, orange carrots and green onion. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks again and stay safe !

      Hi Yuliya, the oyster sauce will give you the most authentic flavor but most people would substitute oyster sauce with soy sauce, so I would suggest adding soy sauce to taste. It will taste better if you mix equal parts of soy sauce and hoisin sauce to get that sweet and salty flavor you are looking for here.

    The Chow Mein recipe calls for the garlic in the sauce AND in the veggie mixture. Which is it? And no mention of the sugar being added to sauce ingredients in one of the instructions. When does the sugar go in? Also, no mention of how the veggies should be chopped .

    Made it last night. Turned out great, even the kids complimented. One thing in the process that came up was the chicken. Quite a bit of water came out while cooking. I had to strain and return to the pan to brown.

    Chow Mein is my FAVE! this is such a perfectly simple recipe with just right flavors and veggies. Thank you so much! I might go hog wild and add a little red sweet pepper for color—or maybe I’ll just keep it perfectly simple and easy. I have read so many Chow Mein recipes, but this one is the bomb!
