Chow Mein Noodles with Chicken Recipe

Chow Mein Noodles with Chicken will be your new favorite homemade takeout food. You'll never need to order in again!

Do you rely on takeout to get you through the week? No shame in admitting yes.

We have all been there, probably more times than we want to admit. I think pizza and Chinese are probably the two easiest and most common things to pick up during the week.

But with just a little bit of planning (going to the grocery store) you can get that Chinese meal on the table in the same amount of time it takes you to go pick it up.

Plus, it is so much better for you, because you know what is going into it. You can bulk it up with more veggies and meat to fill up your family, and know that they are going to eat it.

When I was little I remember my mom getting chow mein noodles when we would get Chinese food.

Not always when we did takeout, because my dad is a crazy picky eater, and would only eat the one thing he knew.

But whenever my mom and I would go to the mall she would get chow mein from Panda Express.

So I decided to make my version of that at home. Peanut chicken with rice is a family favorite, so I knew this Asian noodle dish would be a hit.

I added chicken to our chow mein, because I wanted to bulk up the protein and make this the main dish at dinner. You could add bean sprouts or other veggies to make it go even further.

Super saucy and delicious noodles will definitely become a staple in your house.

Dinner on the table in 20 minutes can pretty much never be wrong! My husband took the leftovers for lunch and loved it, reheating the leftovers is completely optional.

I have been known to eat cold Asian peanut noodles right out of the fridge, so why not these?
