This is a wonderful recipe for Lo Mein, it's a family favorite and one I have made so many times in the past ---you could firstly cook chicken breast strips or shrimp to use in this dish if desired, adjust the chili flakes to desired heat level ;-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large wok or skillet.
  2. In a small cup whisk together the chicken broth with cornstarch until combined; set aside.
  3. Add in the chili flakes and stir for 30 seconds.
  4. Add in the mushrooms, carrots, bell pepper, onion, garlic and ginger; stir-fry until tender (about 3 minutes).
  5. Add in bean sprouts and green onion; cook for about 1 minute.
  6. Add in the chicken broth/cornstarch mixture along with the hoisin sauce, molasses, soy sauce and curry powder; cook, stirring until thickened and heated through.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Mix in the cooked spaghetti to the mixture; toss to combine.
  9. Sprinkle with peanuts or cashews if desired.

This is a perfect lo mein recipe. I replaced the mushrooms with broccoli and snow peas because we dont like mushrooms. I doubled the sauce recipe because I was cooking for 5 people. They did not have hoisin sauce at my local supermarket so I made a mixture of ketchup, orange sauce, and teriyaki sauce and it worked great. I cant wait to try it next time with the hoisin sauce. I also added some pre-packaged already cooked grilled chicken and cooked it with the sauce for the last couple minutes. Thanks so much kittencal for another wonderful recipe!

This made a nice dinner! I used vegetable broth, whole wheat spaghetti, and a little less hoisin sauce. I also replaced the mung sprouts with lentil sprouts. Thanks Kitten!
