    JESMom's Note:

    This is simply the best! A lot of recipes on here seem to list chow mein as being a rice dish, but I've always known it as noodles, like this one. Use as a side dish or main dish. Easily made vegetarian.

      This was really good and to consider the ease of the recipe, WONDERFUL! I only had one fairly small chicken breast and I chopped it into chunks and cooked in powdered chicken broth (mixed with water). I sauteed my onion and 2 tsp fresh ginger til brown and added garlic last. I combined with my whole bag of frozen stir fry veggies, added the chicken broth (mixed with cornstarch) and cooked for a few min.I was surprised how rich, fragrant and deeply colored my sauce turned out. I served mine over brown rice and chow mein noodles and for the rest of the family over spaghetti. It made for a really attractive lo mein. I will make this recipe again and again! Than ks JESmom, for posting. Roxygirl

      Just made this and it was tasty! I've been looking for a simple chow mein recipe for awhile and glad I stumbled upon this. I think I cooked too many noodles because the first taste was bland as could be. So I mixed up more sauce and that did the trick. The only oyster sauce I had was a spicy one and the chow mein was good with a little spice in it! I just wish I had some bean sprouts. I doubled the cabbage too. Overall, a good, simple, chow mein recipe. I will make it again.
