  • 6 oz of Chow Mein Noodles prepared according to the package
  • 2 boneless skinless, chicken breasts, sliced into 1/2 inch strips
  • 2 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 cups of thinly sliced green cabbage for ease, buy a bag of angle haired sliced green cabbage
  • ½ cup carrots matchstick (*for ease, buy a small package of already cut up ones)
  • 3 green onions chopped and divided
  • 2 tsp minced ginger (*for ease, buy a tube of fresh ginger paste in the refrigerated section with the fresh herbs)
  • 3 tsp of minced garlic *for ease, buy a jar of minced garlic to have on hand
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 TBSP oyster sauce
  • 1/2 TBSP granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Prepare veggies as needed. Take a look at my times saving tips below! Season your chicken with salt and pepper to taste, and then cook it in 1 TBSP of the vegetable oil.
  • Once it is slightly browned, place it on a paper towel lined plate and sit to the side.
  • Cook your chow mein noodles according to the package and then drain and set aside.
  • Using the second TBSP of vegetable oil, cook your carrots and celery in your pan for 2-3 minutes. Add cabbage and 2 green onions, then cook till veggies are tender yet still crunchy. About 3-4 more minutes.
  • While your veggies are cooking combine the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, and sesame oil to a small bowl.
  • Once your veggies are cooked, add your noodles and chicken back to the pan and pour your sauce over them. Using tongs, stir your dish till everything is covered in a sauce and warmed through. Garnish with 3rd green onion and enjoy!
