Love chicken chow mein? You can have this tasty dish in your dinner table in just 20 mins! This classic Chinese dish is incredibly easy, all you have to do is cook the noodles and stir fry all the ingredients together and voila! Start by mixing soy sauce, garlic and ginger in a bowl and adding the chicken to marinate for 10mins. This will give the chicken a flavoursome touch that makes all the difference. You can make this dish using beef, turkey, or even prawns – the choice is yours. It also allows you to pack as many vegetables as you like, from broccoli and carrots and mushrooms, so it’s a great way to eat all your vitamins in one go if you’ve had a busy day. This recipe makes enough for two meals, so enjoy with your other half or with a friend. If you’re flying solo for dinner, you can also save the leftovers in an airtight container for lunch the next day – it will keep for a couple of days.
