~Sundays Supper Surprise~

Today was my sons, Ryan day to pick supper. He choose "Chicken Lo Mein". Its usually Julie,Ryan and Doug doing all the cooking but Julie fell asleep while watching tv. So I stepped in and took her place. Ryan and I prepped all the foods except the chicken. Doug already the chicken marinating  in the refrigerator. This is a easy and quick meal to make. I want to make some more soon but with shrimp. I just love Chinese food.

Chicken Lo Mein

1/2 cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in thin strips
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups small broccoli flowerets (fresh or frozen)
1 large onion, cut into wedges
1/2 small red bell pepper, cut in thin strips
1/2 small yellow bell pepper, cut in thin strips
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup cold water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon chicken base or bouillon
1/2 pound spaghetti or linguine, cooked

   1. In a medium bowl, combine first five ingredients. Add chicken, cover, and marinate 1 to 24 hours in refrigerator.
   2. In a wok or large, deep skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Add chicken mixture and broccoli. Stir-fry 2 minutes. Add onion, peppers, and mushrooms. Stir-fry until tender.
   3. In a small bowl, blend water, cornstarch, and bouillon. Stir into chicken and cook until thickened. Add cooked spaghetti; toss until thoroughly mixed. Serve immediately.

Sounds good! Now what type of Soy sauce do you use? Some of them aren't that great! I was too tired to cook last night, it was a sandwich night.
Have a good week.
