This recipe for chicken chow mein is really simple to make. Basically, all you have to do is get your ingredients chopped up and ready beforehand and follow the steps in the recipe below.


  • 14 ounces chow mein noodles (package prepared, set aside, any medium thickness noodles are fine though but the Asian ones are best)
  • 1 pound chicken breasts (thinly sliced)
  • Cole slaw mix (Small bag of pre cut, containing cabbage, carrots,etc – don’t worry about the exact size of the bag – more or less won’t hurt the recipe)
  • 2 stalks celery (chopped)
  • 5 green onions (chopped, set aside about 1/4 of them for garnish)
  • 3/4 inch fresh ginger (piece of, minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 4 cups beansprouts (minced)
  • vegetable oil


  1. Heat the oil in a large wok for a couple minutes at medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger to the oil and stir. Cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the chicken to the wok and cook on medium. Cook until they are no longer pink. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. Combine water, soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar in a measuring cup and set it aside so it’s handy.
  5. Add a tiny bit more oil to the wok if needed and add the Cole slaw mix and celery. Add a small amount of the sauce that was set aside and cook for about 5 minutes. The veggies should be softened.
  6. Add the chicken back to the wok and pour in the remaining sauce.
  7. Add the bean sprouts and 3/4 of the green onions. Cook for a little over 1 minute then turn down the heat to LOW.
  8. Add the noodles to the wok and stir everything around so the sauce coats everything.
  9. Turn off the heat.
  10. Add the sesame oil to the wok and toss the noodles. I find that using a set of tongs helps when tossing the noodles and combining everything.
  11. Serve right away and garnish with additional green onion slices.
