Chicken Chow Mein
My take on the classic Chinese dish... this one made with linguine and leftover roast chicken!
Chicken Chow Mein Chicken Chow Mein

This is the ultimate comfort food, that is both wholesome and healthy! And such a great way to us up leftover roast chicken. With bean sprouts, carrots, salad onions and chillis too, it's the perfectly balanced family meal.

  1. Start with your pasta or noodles and follow the instructions on the pack for quantities and cooking times. Drain and toss in some sesame oil to coat
  2. Whilst the pasta is cooking, prep your garlic, ginger, carrots, salad onions and chilli and set aside. Then combine the ingredients for your sauce in a small bowl and whisk until smooth
  3. Finally heat the oil in wok and when its nice and hot, fry the garlic, ginger and chilli first for a minute or so and then add in the carrots, onions, bean sprouts and chicken and cooking sauce. Continue to stir fry for another minute or so before adding in the pasta. Season, mix in well and when everything is piping hot, serve with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and a little freshly chopped coriander

I'm Siân, a passionate foodie all my life... I started out working with hotels and restuarants in London, to get young people into the industry and develop their basic skills. Moves and changes over the years have taken me in broader directions, but with a different work/life balance now, I'm back to food... sharing easy, healthy meal ideas for you to experiment yourself with in the kitchen! There's lots of fish, beans and vegetables! Happy cooking!
