Chicken Lo Mein

I love Chinese food and lo mein is one of my most loved dishes. Tonight I tried a new combination of flavors and came up with my favorite lo mein recipe to date. The meal received two thumbs up from Sully and Owen so you know it was a winner!

~ Chicken Lo Mein ~

3 - 4 chicken breasts, diced

2 teaspoons sugar

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1/4 cup soy sauce

Combine the ingredients above in a ball and place in the refrigerator for about an hour. When you're ready to begin cooking, combine the following:

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup water

1 tablespoon sesame oil

2 teaspoons sugar

1 tablespoon white vinegar

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Thicken with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch (mix the cornstarch with a small amount of the sauce in a separate dish and then add to the rest). Set aside.

Cook one pound of spaghetti. Be sure not to overcook it as a little "bite" to the pasta makes this dish even better.

Heat some oil in a wok or skillet and cook the chicken. Place in a bowl. You can use any vegetables that you and your family enjoys. I used a yellow onion, 3 cloves of garlic, and 1 carrot that I shredded. Saute your veggies in a small amount of oil. Add the chicken back to the pan. Add some ginger (dried or fresh) and the sauce you made. Let the mixture bubble and thicken for a few minutes. Add the cooked spaghetti to the pan and mix thoroughly.
