Chicken Lo Mein
1/2 pound angel hair pasta
3 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons light sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon starch
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
2-3 cloves garlic minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1 1/2 cup chopped broccoli florets
1 to 1/14 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast cut into bite size strips or what I do is use the Rotisserie chicken purchased from Costco =D they are so yummy and only $4.99 and are so handy to add to dishes like these
Cook the noodles according to the package directions until just tender. Drain and run the noodles with cold water, drain well and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix the hoisin sauce, chicken broth, soy sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch. Then set sauce aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir fry the ginger for a minute then add the onion and stir fry for 2 minutes.
Add the carrots and stir fry 2 minutes more. Finally, add the broccoli and stir fry another 2 minutes. Add to the skillet the noodles,cut up rotisserie chicken and the sauce and using two spatulas or wooden spoons, lightly toss the mixture until heated through and when its all mixed.
