Chicken Chow Mein

I've tried a number of chow mein recipes and this is the tastiest I've ever had. It appeared in the Slimming World magazine March/April 2015 and is zero syns
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 4 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Root Ginger finely grated
  • 1 Red chilli De-seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 4 Skinless Chicken Breasts cut into chunky strips
  • 250 g Dried medium egg noodles
  • 2 Red peppers De-seeded & thinly sliced
  • 1 Carrot Peeled & cut into thin matchsticks
  • 2 Pak Choi
  • 100 g Fresh Beansprouts
  • 8 Spring Onions Cut into diagonal slices
  • 2 tbsp Oyster sauce


  • Mix together the grated ginger, crushed garlic, soy sauce and tomoto puree then add the chopped chicken, cover & leave in the fridge to marinate for as long as you can. (It'll taste just fine if only left for 10 minutes but the longer the better.....)
  • Meanwhile, add the noodles, carrot, peppers and pak choi leaves to a pan of boiling water and boil for 4 minutes then drain in a colander
  • Chop the spring onions diagonally and add to the beansprouts
  • When almost ready to serve, heat a large wok or frying pan with a little frylite and then cook the chicken & marinade mixture for 4 or 5 minutes. When the chicken is cooked through, add all the remaining ingredients including the oyster sauce mixed with 6 tablespoons of water. Stir until everything is evenly mixed. I found a pair of tongs really handy for this. As soon as everything is combined, serve immediately.
