Easy Vegetable Chow Mein

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

A vegetable meal that starts with the convenience of frozen vegetables. It can be made more hearty by adding 2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey with the frozen vegetables in step 2. If you cannot find oyster sauce, substitute 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Recipe from one of Betty Crocker's supermarket cookbooklets.

The recipe is good and easy to make, but we really didn't like the fishy flavor the oyster sauce gave it so we added a package of chow mein sauce mix to it and it gave it better flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
