When I lived in TX, I was trying to duplicate a light sauce based chicken chow mein similar to one of my favorite take-outs in Minneapolis. This is relatively close and very tasty!! Now that I'm back in the Minneapolis area, I tell my DH that I've forgotten how to make chow mein...

This is exactly the chow mein recipe I was looking for. It was delicious and easy as pie to make. Great for when you don't want a complicated dinner. I served it on crunchy noodles and made some fried rice. I will definitely make this again. Next time I will use fresh bean sprouts as I didn't like the canned taste, and they are so readily available in my area. I also didn't have Accent, and it was still yummy. This is my first recipe/review on Zaar. So far so good!

I don't like mushrooms so I left them out. This is a keeper. I also doubled the cornstarch. yum! Oh, and added salt/pepper and a clove of fresh minced garlic

I substituted red pepper for the mushrooms and it was excellant. Rice and crispy asian noodles were a great texture combo. I doubled the cornstarch for better consistency.
