Chicken and Vegetable Lo Mein

Add to Meal Planner


This light, fresh, family-friendly dish is perfect for a busy weeknight because it comes together quickly and is simple enough that older kids can help — or maybe even make on their own. To keep things easy, you can buy cut-up vegetables from your store’s produce section or salad bar. But even if you cut them up yourself, the secret to success is to have all the components prepped before you start to cook. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.


  • 8 oz. spaghetti
  • 1 inch fresh ginger (1 inch is 2 tablespoons minced)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce (or use 3 tablespoons for extra flavor)
  • 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil (for sauce)
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups sugar snap pea
  • 1 cup red bell pepper (thinly sliced; 1 cup is 1/2 large bell pepper)
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil (for chicken)
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • soy sauce (optional; for serving)
  • toasted sesame oil (optional; for serving)

    1. Cook spaghetti in a 5- to 6-quart pot or Dutch oven according to package directions until barely tender (“al dente”), about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside in a colander.
    2. While spaghetti cooks, prepare all the ingredients and the sauce. Using the edge of a spoon, scrape peel from the ginger. Then mince ginger and garlic and set aside.
    3. In a glass measuring cup, stir together chicken broth, reduced-sodium soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil for sauce, and cornstarch until cornstarch dissolves. Set sauce mixture aside.

    Terrible directions, way too much oil, thankful for my Asian food cooking husband who stepped in and turned the quickly building dumpster fire into something at least somewhat decent. Will not make again.

    This was delicious. My husband ate 2 heaping platefuls. I did substitute angel hair pasta for spaghetti. I loved all the vegetables and it was super easy to put together. I would definitely prep all of your vegetables and cut your chicken up ahead of time, it just makes it easier. Also, loved that I cooked it all in one pot. I will be making this again.

    It was really good, although I think the sauce should be doubled. I made it the second time, doubled the sauce and it is delicious!!! And I am not a chef. So if I can, anyone can. Yum!!!

    Had to sub teriyaki sauce plus a little honey and worcestershire for the hoisin. Also added cabbage and substituted asparagus for the broccoli... turned out great!

    It was good, I may have over did it on the ginger, as that was definitely the star flavor in this dish. Good thing I love ginger! Would definitely make again with some possible adjustments to the sauce but that is a personal preference.
