    IngridH's Note:

    There are lots of chow mein recipes out there, but this is how I like to make it. It reminds me of fast food chow mein, but it's not nearly as greasy. I call for chicken here, but use whatever protein you like- or none at all!

      I made this exactly as posted, except I couldn't find baby bok choy and used a regular one. I used dried wheat mein noodles, because I couldn't find fresh chow mein noodles. This is an excellent way to stretch a small amount of chicken into a great meal! I loved it, and it tastes just as good reheated the next day. I'll definitely make this one again. Thanks for sharing!

      Very good and like many chinese dishes, easily prepared. I added mushroms, and some sliced zucchini, and had to omit the water chestnuts, otherwise, as recipe, we very much enjoyed this, especially my younger daughter who is a huge fan of this kind of dish. Thank you Ingrid, good recipe, made for PRMR tag game

      Quick, easy and delicious. I sauteed fresh mushrooms and bean sprouts and added them to the mixture. Next time, I would omit the noodles and serve over crunchy chinese noodles or whtie rice.
