12.3 oz (350 grams) of chicken breast
1/3 tsp of salt
1/3 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tbsp of Chinese cooking wine (Amazon Link -
Black pepper to taste
3 cloves of garlic, sliced thinly
1/2 inch of ginger, julienne
4 oz of carrot, julienne
1/2 of a red bell pepper, julienne
5 mushroom, sliced thinly
4 oz of snap peas
5 scallions

To Make The Sauce
1.5 tbsp of Soy sauce (Amazon Link -
1 tbsp of dark soy sauce (Amazon Link -
1 tbsp of oyster sauce (Amazon Link -
1 tbsp Hoisin sauce (Amazon Link -
1 tbsp of Chinese cooking wine (Amazon Link -
1/2 tbsp of pure Peanut butter (Amazon Link -
1/2 cup of water


Slice the chicken breast thinly. Marinade with garlic, ginger, salt, Chinese cooking wine, black pepper, and baking soda. Baking soda will break down the meat fibers and tenderize the chicken. It will give you that melt in your mouth texture.

Julienne the carrot, bell pepper. Slice the mushroom. Cut the scallions. To save time, you can buy a bag of pre-cut, mixed vegetables from the supermarket.

In a sauce bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients thoroughly. The peanut butter makes the sauce creamier and thicker, helps the flavor to wrap around the ingredients. You have to break up the peanut butter a little bit first so it doesn't clump up.

Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles until 80% done. Drain completely. Do not over cooked the noodles otherwise they will turn soggy when you finish them in the wok with that lomein sauce.

Meanwhile, turn the heat to high and heat your wok until smoking hot. Toss in the marinade chicken and stir for 2 minutes or until it just changes color. Add all the vegetables except for the scallions. continue to stir for 1 minute. Add the well-drained noodles along with the lomein sauce. Keep stirring over medium heat until all the sauce is absorbed. As soon as the sauce is gone, you have to turn off the heat. Otherwise the noodles will start sticking to the wok.

Add the scallions and serve.
