This does not take long to make and it’s super comforting. When you need a pick me up after a long day at work, this is the one for us. Of course if you’re veggie or vegan switch out for alternatives, tofu works well in a chow mein. Read below to find out how to make my Quick and Easy Chicken Chow Mein Recipe…

  • 1 heaped tsp Very Lazy Chopped Garlic or any other garlic paste
  • 3 tbsp Reduced Salt/Sugar Tomato Ketchup

  • 200 g Bean Sprouts
  • 3 Chicken Thighs skinned, boneless, fat removed
  • 2 Nests of Egg Noodles
  • 1 tbsp Veg Oil


  1. Stir the sauce ingredients together, keep to one side.
  2. Prepare the pepper and onion, then use a different chopping board to cut the chicken thighs into strips.
  3. Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the egg noodles as per their packet instructions. When done drain the noodles and keep to one side.
  4. Whilst the noodles cook, heat up the oil in a heavy bottomed frying pan or wok. Start cooking the chicken, when it starts to brown put in the onion and pepper and cook until softened.
  5. Add the noodles, beansprouts and stir fry for a couple of minutes, add the combined sauce ingredients and cook until everything is coated and the sauce is heated through.
  6. Serve in bowls, enjoy!

    I’ve never made chicken chow mein before, but I might give it a go with this recipe! It’s my boyfriend that does the cooking usually so it’ll be nice to do it myself for a change

    I love eating chow mein and one of my absolute favourite is beef chow mein – cooked with slices of beef cause it’s so much quicker! I like the look of your food though 🙂

      We rarely cook with beef, but I will give it a go.

    This looks so nice. I really love noodles but my husband doesn’t. I suppose I could make this and freeze half for another meal!

      You can reheat the next day – I sometimes take this for lunch!
