Panda Express Chow Mein

This recipe is one of those restaurant copy cats.  It does use easy to find ingredients and is quick to put together.  If you are craving a Chinese dinner in a hurry this recipe is for you.  If you do not want to use Yaki Soba noodles, cooked spaghetti can be substituted.  To the original recipe I also add some chicken, but if you want a vegetarian version, just leave the chicken out.

  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 (5.6 oz) packages refrigerated Yaki Soba noodles (found in the produce section of the grocery store.. usually the 3 packages are sold together in one 17oz. pack)
  • 2/3 c. chopped celery (chopped diagonally)
  • 1 medium-sized onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 c. chopped cabbage
  • 1 c. sliced carrot
  • 1 chicken breast (optional)
  • Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and giner together and save as the sauce.
  • Heat oil in a large frypan.  If using chicken, cut in cubes and saute til no longer pink.  Add vegetables and saute for 10 minutes.  Cook noodles and add in.  Last, pour in the sauce and ook just until heated through.
