I always say this but I’ll say it again…I’m absolutely in LOVE with Asian inspired meals ! Dumplings, Egg rolls, Egg drop soup, Hot and Sour Soup, Tofu ANYTHING, sake…hell you name it. I LOVE it. I’ll even try to duplicate it…with my own twist. With that being said, I had a bunch of veggies, some chicken breasts and some shrimp at the house and decided to try my hand at lo mein…enough with the small talk…check it out.
Jay’s take on Shrimp and Chicken Lo Mein
Fresh or frozen shrimp
1/2 a green, red, yellow and orange bell pepper
1 medium sized diced onion
5 medium to large sized mushrooms diced
1 zucchini and 1 squash sliced into halves or quarters (safe to say bite sized pieces)
1 head of fresh broccoli chopped
1 bunch of scallions chopped
A generous handful of basil
1 package of stir fry noodles
Ginger honey crystals
Kikkoman Stir-Fry sauce
Low sodium soy sauce or Braggs Amino
Chili garlic sauce
Crushed red pepper
Step 1: Clean your chicken breasts well and cut into bit sized pieces and preheat your medium sized frying pan with 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and brown.
Step 2: Add sesame oil to your wok and add all your veggies and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
Step 3: Rinse your shrimp well…and de vein if needed. Then toss with crushed red pepper and scallions.
Step 4: Boil your water for :3-:5 minutes on high heat and add your noodles to your boiling water…only allow to boil for another :3-:5 minutes or your noodles will become soggy.
Step 5: Turn your noodles off and strain in a colander. Sorry for the shadow…you try cooking and taking pics 🙂 #Coordination
Step 6: Add your shrimp and chicken breasts to your veggies.
Step 7: Now to create your sauce ! Microwave or boil a mug of hot water and add a package of Ginger Honey Crystals and stir. From here mix stir fry sauce, a few dashes of soy sauce (or Braggs Amino) and chili sauce to a measuring cup and stir well and set it aside until after you add your noodles.
Step 8: Add your noodles to your wok ingredients. Sorry this image is a little blurry.
Step 8: Pour your measuring cup ingredients into your mug and stir well. From there add sauce to your wok ingredients….almost done !
Step 9: Saute to allow all your ingredients to marry:)
Step 10: Serve and thoroughly enjoy !
