Chicken Chow Mein

It has been quite some time since I have posted some new recipes.  I got a new job at the beginning of this year and it has been keeping me quite busy! I have been traveling a lot less with the new position so I have had quite some time to experiment with different recipes.  We have been trying to eat healthy and tried a lot of new recipes.  I will work on getting all of them posted.

For now, here is a recipe that I made when I was looking for something different.  We had been eating a lot of meat/seafood and veggies and I wanted to do something different.  This was a recipe that we had everything for in our house and it was super quick and easy!  The sauce isn't too overpowering  which is nice!  Enjoy!

Simple Chicken Chow Mein

2 (3 oz.) packages ramen noodles, seasoning packets discarded
1 medium yellow onion
2 medium carrots
1 crown broccoli
1/2 cup sugar snap peas
2 large chicken breasts (1 lbs), cut into cubes
1 clove of garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. olive oil
¼ cup soy sauce
3 tbsp  Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp ketchup
A dash of hot sauce of your choice

Add 1 tbsp. olive oil and chopped garlic to a large skillet, bring to medium heat. Add chicken to skillet and sauté on medium heat.  While chicken is cooking, prepare ramen noodles according to package instructions.  Remove noodles from the heat when thy are slightly undercooked, strain and set aside.  Once chicken is lightly browned, remove from skillet and set aside.

In the same large skillet, bring the remaining 1 tbsp. of olive oil to medium heat.  Add all vegetables to skillet. While vegetables are cooking, quickly mix up the chow mein sauce.  In a medium bowl, olive oil, soy sauce, Worchester sauce, ketchup, and hot sauce.

After vegetables are lightly browned (about 5 minutes), add chicken and ramen noodles to the skillet, then pour chow mein sauce over the mixture.  Sauté chow mein for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
