Cluckin' Lo Mein

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CookbookCarrie

I made this up when trying out about 12 other lo mein recipes. This is my variation and very good. I like more sauce as opposed to less, adjust the amount you want when you're putting yours together, you dont need to use it all.

This is a great recipe! I made it with egg noodles, I think I'm going to try a diff kind next time - Goin to go for Farkay! Instructs were good, there was a moment there about adding rest of vinegar to jar I didn't quite understand, so I added 1/2 tbsp more vinegar to the sauce. All in all, good flavor, not too greasy or salty, nice amount of ginger and garlic. But you know how it is when you have ideas about what a dish is...I want to keep searching until I have the chow mein I get in restaurants here in BC. This is a yummy home chowmein tho', for certain! Thanks very much for sharing!!
