1/1 Photo of Chicken Chow Mein
Based on a recipe from my Chinese Cooking Class Cookbook. Since this recipe has you removing the skin and bones from the chicken breasts, you can probably get away with using boneless skinless breasts versus the whole breasts; I often find the whole breasts cheaper so I use them. NOTE: preparation and cooking times do not include the 2-3 hours that the noodles need to dry nor the 1 hour that the chicken and pork marinate in the refrigerator before cooking.
