The nice thing about this dish is that it makes enough to eat for an entire week. Chicken, mushrooms, fresh ginger and garlic, and a tasty sauce.


1 13 ounce package of lo mein noodles
1 pound boneless skinless chicken, diced
1/2 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced thin
6 scallions, diced (mince the greens for a garnish)
2 Tablespoons canola or other neutral oil


3 cloves garlic, minced
2 inches fresh ginger, peeled and grated or minced
4 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1/4 cup hot water

Garnishes: (Optional)

Soy sauce
Scallion greens
Chopped peanuts
Chili sauce


1) Mince the garlic and gingers and whisk with all the other sauce ingredients.

2) Slice the mushrooms and scallions thinly.  Dice the chicken into small pieces.

3) Cook the noodles (lo mein) according to instructions on package and then drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.

4) Add Canola oil to a hot pan (wok or large skillet).  Once the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook until done (about 5 minutes).  Remove the chicken and add the sliced mushrooms to the pan.  Add another tablespoon of oil if the pan is dry.  Cook the mushrooms for a minute or two until they are slightly soft, but not soggy.

5) Toss chicken and mushrooms together in the skillet and add all the sauce.  It should come to a simmer almost immediately. Reduce for a minute or two.

6) Add noodles to the mix and toss everything together.  Cook for another 30 seconds.  Add diced scallions and toss to coat.

7) Serve immediately with chili sauce, diced scallion greens, chopped peanuts and extra soy sauce.
