I may have mentioned this, but we don’t have a dishwasher. Yes, fact… there is a family of four in 2015 that still washes every dish by hand. So can you guess what my favorite recipes are? One pot, one skillet, one pan, one dish… Anything where one container and my prep station are all I need to clean!

Plus busy people everywhere need a few go to meals that don’t require a full kitchen staff to create. When I found this one on Pinterest I was excited to try it. The only time I’ve ever had lo mein was ordering it for take out from the Chinese food place. Be adventurous with me, try something totally out of the box. It’s simple. Delicious. And your family will love it!

Original Recipe:  The Wholesome Dish

Easy Chicken Lo Mein

(printable recipe here)


1/2 lb Chicken Breast, cut into bite sized chunks {about 6-8 tenders}
1 box of Linguini or Fettuccini, broken in half
4 Medium carrots, cut into 3 inch strips {or a few handfuls of baby carrots}
1 bunch of green onions
4 Cloves Garlic, Minced {2 tsp}
2 Tbsp cup Soy Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Corn Starch
1 Tbsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes (go easy!)
4 cups Chicken Broth
2 tsp Olive Oil

  1. Add the chicken, then pasta, then all ingredients into a large stockpot and cover.
  2. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat.
  3. Stir & reduce to medium-low heat.
  4. Cook covered for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Cook until most of the liquid is gone & chicken is cooked through.
  6. Remove lid, let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  • I have used rice noodles and thin whole wheat spaghetti for this, both equally delish!
  • I cut back on the soy sauce the 2nd time I tried this due to too much salty flavor.
  • Careful with the red pepper flakes, this is where ALL of the heat comes from.

    • I have tried this with Rice noodles (I found mine in the Asian food area) and it worked out just fine! If anything you can add them in later in the boiling process. Good luck, let me know how it turns out!


  1. This is one of my favorite dishes, but I hardly ever make it at home. I have to try this now. Looks so simple.


    • Oh so simple!! And you will be surprised at how much better it tastes when you know you made it yourself!!
