Chicken Chow Mein

This beloved menu staple from every neighbourhood Chinese restaurant, everywhere, is actually easy to make at your house. Originating in Northern China, 'chow mein' simply translates to 'stir-fried noodles' in Mandarin, which means there's not lot of mystery here, just good flavour and satisfying texture.
