  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut thin
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons chile sauce (depending on how spicy you want it)
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 8 ounces lo mein noodles
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms sliced
  • 2 carrots cut into matchstick pieces
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 8 ounces water chestnuts drained
  • scallions diced for garnish
  • sesame seeds for garnish


  • Heat a large pot of water until it comes to a roaring boil. Season with salt. Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain the noodles, drizzle with 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and cover to keep warm.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons oyster sauce, 1-2 tablespoons chile sauce, and 2 teaspoons cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Heat 3 tablespoons of sesame oil in a large skilet. Add the chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes - no need for it to cook all the way through.
  • Add the vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes, covered. Add the sauce, water chestnutes, and noodles to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook for an additional minute or two to allow the flavors to combine.
  • Serve and enjoy.
