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!

Absolutely delicious. My modifications: I stir fried onion and carrot until the onion was clear and the carrot about half-cooked, added the cabbage and garlic. Once the cabbage was cooked I added broccoli. I sauteed zucchini separately and then added it at the last minute with the chicken. Next time I will split the second sauce in order to keep the noodles separate so that we can control how much noodles or vegetables we serve up. You definitely can use any veggies you want with this recipe. Very, very pleased and will definitely need to make this again!! note: head to your local Asian grocery store, everything you need will be very reasonably priced over going to a big chain store.

Once upon a time i recall having chicken chow mein at a restaurant... what i had eaten there had blown me away and I was never able to find another restaurant or fast food place that made it the same way. All chow mein that I get now tends to be incredibly bland. Fast forward to the day I decided to give this recipe a try. SPOT. ON. I was so happy to finally be able to make an easy chicken chow mein recipe at home that was so delicious! I never tried before thinking it would be a waste of my time to make some bland noodles. Will be making this more often in the future. Worth every star I've rated it for.

Awesome recipe. This is the chow mein recipe I've been searching for. Didn't have water chestnuts, so added slivered carrots for texture. Next time I'll add some bean sprouts as well. A 5-star recipe no matter how you prepare it

Everything sounds good but I think adding bean sprouts makes it more tasty

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.
