Chicken Chow Mein For a Busy Night

Updated: Feb 16, 2021

I love chicken chow mein. It's a family favourite and the kids will eat it 7 days a week if they could. It's a great way to use up all the leftover vegetables I have lying around in my fridge. Little bits and pieces of vegetables need not go to waste anymore with this recipe. I love how you can change up the ingredients according to your family's wishes, and can be one of those dishes you rustle up on a busy week night.
