Finys One Pot Chow Mein

This is Chow Mein as I know it, however it is not really like the take away one or the one you get at Asian restaurants.

I have used prawns, chicken and vegetables along with sauces to create a healthy and delicious one pot meal.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes plus 20 minutes marinating time
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 3 - 4

2 large chicken breasts
2 ½ tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp dry sherry
½ tsp chilli sauce, or to taste
½ tbsp sesame oil
½ tsp corn flour
150 g egg noodles
1 stick celery
100 g mushrooms
1 carrot
50 g snow peas
½ bunch spring onions
40 g short cut bacon (or you could use ham)
2 tbsp oil
50 g prawns, cooked and peeled

  • Slice the chicken finely into pieces.

  • Mix the soy sauce, chilli sauce, sherry, sesame oil, and corn flour together.

  • Stir in the chicken, cover and marinate for 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile put the noodles into a bowl of boiling water, and cover completely - leave for 10 minutes, separating them once or twice.

  • Slice the celery diagonally, clean and slice the mushrooms.

  • Peel the carrots and cut them into thin matchsticks. Halve the snow peas, and cut the spring onions.
  • Vegetables should be about this size

  • Chop the bacon into small pieces and I cooked mine for a few minutes in the microwave, so it started to go crispy.

  • Heat half the oil in a wok and stir fry the celery and mushrooms for a minute.

  • Add the carrots, snow peas and spring onions and cook for about two minutes.

  • Take out of the wok.

  • Heat the remaining oil in the wok and add the chicken strips and the marinade, and stir fry for about 5 minutes - do not overcook or it will become dry.

  • Stir in the rinsed and drained noodles, prawns (I cut mine into smaller pieces as they were jumbo prawns), bacon and the cooked vegetables.

  • Stir fry for about 3 minutes or until it is hot throughout.

  • Serve.
