Chicken Lo Mein
I originally got this meal out of the Kraft food & family magazine, but I modified it some. It's so easy since you use a frozen bag of vegetables. I decided to picture the ingredients on this recipe. Let me know if it helps anyone.
1/2 lb. spaghetti or angel hair, uncooked (or multigrain pasta, I used ½ box of Heartland multigrain angel hair or I also like Barilla Plus angel hair, just watch for eggs)
1/4 cup KRAFT Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes (omit this for a veggie lo mein)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen vegetables, your choice (I like the “Deluxe Stir Fry” at Walmart)
1/2 cup chicken broth (or 1/2 cup water & 1/2 bouillon cube)
1 Tbsp. peanut butter (natural for heart healthy)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup peanuts (or less as desire)
1/4 cup chopped green onions (optional)
Cook pasta in a large saucepan as directed on package (and actually, for the Heartland or Barilla Plus, I've learned to cook it longer, about 10 minutes total)
Heat dressing in large, nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken and garlic, stir fry for 3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Add vegetables, broth, and peanut butter; stir fry for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
Stir in pasta, peanuts, and green onions and enjoy!
Tip: Break your pasta in half before cooking to make it easier to serve and eat.
