Chicken Chow Mein, also known as Stir Fried Noodles with Chicken, can be a quick meal, not to be mistaken with the other Chicken Chow Mein takeout without noodles (see my recipe below). In the end of the video, I also compared Chow Mein and Lo Mein. Mein in Chinese means noodles (Mian). While you may use either noodles for this recipe, it is preferred to use Chow Mein noodles since they are harder and crispier. Enjoy!

Here’s my Lo Mein noodles with Shrimp:

My other Chicken Chow Mein without noodles:

Carbon steel wok:

Light soy sauce (non-GMO):

Dark Soy Sauce

Oyster sauce
