Chicken Lo Mein

Lo Mein is a fantastic Chinese takeout option if you’re looking for something a bit thicker than the traditional Chow Mein.

Chicken Lo Mein
 Easy Chicken Lo Mein

As a kid growing up my mom was not very well versed in making Chinese food (she once made chow mein with angel hair noodles). I wanted to know how to make lo mein like in Chinese restaurants but despite her best efforts we’d end up with were soy sauce flavored noodles with all the veggies she thought she could hide in the pot.

It was a valiant effort, but it never really tasted like Chinese food from a Chinese Restaurant.

Since watching my favorite Daytime talkshow make their version of The Chew chicken lo mein (I’m a huge Micheal Symon fan), I had a craving to make some lo mein.

What you’re looking at is my quickly thrown together lo mein with the ingredients I had on hand and it was as delicious as my favorite takeout spot. My husband was watching along with me but he didn’t understand the difference of lo mein vs chow mein until he saw the difference in these noodles!

Easy Lo Mein

What is the difference between lo mein and chow mein?

A traditional chow mein has noodles that are boiled, then stir fried until having a slightly crisped exterior while lo mein is boiled then tossed in a sauce without cooking the noodles an additional amount. The noodles are roughly the same, both egg noodles, but lo mein noodles are normally thicker and chewier.

What kind of sauce is in lo mein?

Lo Mein sauce is made with a sesame oil base that the noodles are tossed in with garlic, ginger, oyster sauce and soy sauce to round out the slightly sweet and slightly spicy sacuce.

Lo Mein Recipe Variations:

  • Shrimp Lo Mein: Cook the shrimp after the veggies instead of before and remove them reserving them to toss with the pasta at the end. Undercook the shrimp by about 15 seconds before cause they will keep cooking in with the pasta.
  • Beef Lo Mein: Flank steak is the best beef for lo mein. Slice the beef against the grain and cook in on a high heat for just 30 seconds on each side.
  • Vegetable Lo Mein: The easiest of all the varieties, add in your favorite vegetables cooked until just softened but still with a crisp bite.

Best Vegetables for Lo Mein:

  • broccoli
  • red and green bell pepper
  • snow peas
  • green onions
  • sliced baby bok choy
  • sliced zucchini
  • julienned carrots
  • thinly sliced onions

Tools Used in the making of this Chicken Lo Mein:
Lo Mein Noodles: Authentic and flavorful for the perfect lo mein.
Soy Sauce: Nothing much to say here except Kikkoman has the best flavor overall and I always recommend reduced sodium.
Wok: The best way to cook quickly and over high heat for Asian dishes, this wok is the perfect stir fry pan.
Sesame Oil: The flavor of sesame oil in this dish is unmistakeable and not really able to be substituted. Some Asian grocery stores will try and sell less expensive options that aren’t actually sesame oil, so just be sure the one you’re buying is authentic sesame oil.

  1. My husband & I had this Lo Mein dish tonight and it was fabulous!!! Absolutely loved it, thank you for the recipe.

  2. I love to try new recipes, I cooked this tonight and was not impressed. No flavour.I liked all the veg , noodles, chicken but the sauce tastes like something is missing.

  3. Loved this recipe. I used already cookied tail off x-small shrimp. I only made one tweak. I boiled my lo mein noodles in chicken stock. Which I reserved a little of the liquid to cook the veggies and to thicken instead of cornstarch. I also made your lemon chicken (a few times now), but finally thought to grab a picture before I dig into my left overs (even better the next day). I made egg fried rice as well. Thanks for sharing your recipes. I just don’t know how to attach it. Lol

  4. I’ve made your recipe a whole lot of times and added broccoli and removed cabbage option , added mushroom to it, white pepper and sweet chili to it and its delicious. Its such a big hit and when my Asian friends tell me I’ve mastered the flavors and taste better than our local chinese stores I smile because of your recipe .

  5. This was very good! I chopped up some baby bok choy, added sliced mushrooms along with the listed recipe ingredients. I love all kinds of cabbage and thought it would go nicely along with the shredded cabbage. Also added some snow peas.. so much better than the buffet! Thank you so much! We loved it!

  6. Excited to try this recipe tonight! Are the lo mein noodles that are pictured the same ones linked to the Amazon egg noodles or are they different? Looking for the thickness that is shown in the picture. Thanks in advance!

    1. Yes, they’re the same thickness. I might have used a different brand from a local grocery store but these will definitely work. I hope you enjoy it!

        1. Hi! If you click the “Egg noodles” in the ingredients it will take you directly to the noodles used.

  7. I made this tonight for dinner. Easy to make but felt it had no flavor and lacked seasoning. Maybe double the sauce the next time and had some salt??

    1. You could double it and adjust the seasoning to fit more to your liking. Hope this helps for next time.

  8. This is an excellent recipe. I used roasted chicken breast and just started it with the veg. My husband loved it and I will for sure make it again often. I found perfect lo mein noodles at World Market.

  9. I made this today for supper. We both enjoyed it very much! I will add more bean sprouts when I reheat the leftovers. Excellent recipe! I used a Costco roasted chicken breast half and started it with the carrot and cabbage with no salt but all the pepper, the fresh noodles from World Market and I sliced the cabbage 1/4″ thick so it would stay a little crunchy. My husband had two big servings.

  10. Wayyy too salty and sticky! I would use half the amount of cornstarch and soy sauce. Or check another recipe

  11. If I could give 0 stars I would. I love trying new recipes and honestly this was a waste of my time. Tasted awful and nothing like lo mein. I would have been better off buying Chinese takeout. The sauce was awful and definitely was missing something. Don’t know how this recipe received so many 5 stars. Will be looking for a better lo mein recipe

  12. Wondering if rice noodles would work as a substitute because I have Celiac Disease and am gluten free. Anyone try this?

  13. These comments are insane. This tastes nothing like take out. I followed the recipe exactly, and this is like something from the frozen food section at best. Very disappointing.

  14. Do you use fresh or canned bean sprouts? Fresh bean sprouts seem very hard to find. Looks delicious, can’t wait to try it 🙂

    1. I used fresh as the canned versions don’t have the same texture or flavor. If you’re having an issue finding them, you could substitute with more cabbage or thinly sliced Bok choi. Hope that helps.

  15. Tried for the first time tonight I did not use the bell pepper or sesame oil. It was good for something different and will make again using the sesame oil. Thumbs up from my family.

  16. Chinese food never tastes the same homemade but even the take-out isn’t so great now. This recipe was outstanding. It’s take-out but it’s the best take-out. Next time I want to try it without the cornstarch which is what I’m used to. Yummy!!!! Thank you!!!

  17. Hi Sabrina, this looks lovely so will be making it for dinner tonight. Just wondered whether you ever velvet your chicken. I simply slice it thinly then add a couple of tablespoons of cornflour (corn starch for the US peeps). Just leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes and the chicken will be the so tender, I do it every time I cook Chinese and it makes such a difference.

  18. Delicious! I made it without any meat (I’m a vegetarian) pretty much as written – but used hoisin sauce instead of oyster sauce. My husband added some thin slices of grilled pork to his. Several times he said “this is REALLY good!” The recipe is so easy, so versatile and so tasty we will make permutations and combinations of it many times in the future, experimenting with different veggies, tofu and other different proteins. Thank you . . .

  19. This was delicious!! I added some brown sugar to it just to give it a little more sweetness but the recipe is still good as is! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!

  20. This came together pretty quickly. I used coleslaw mix from a bag (I didn’t have time to run for a cabbage leaf from the garden, which was my original plan), julienned carrots and green onions sliced on bias. I had made fresh lo mein noodles which I froze a couple of months ago. The sauce… seemed to be missing something… and I can’t imagine what because I have never even had lo mein before. Lol. I thought maybe a little more salt… Or maybe some sugar/hoisin? Pepper flakes? I will make again. It was a very pretty dish.

  21. This was delicious.Thank you! A bit of prep, because this cooks up fast. Topped with some toasted peanuts for a little extra crunch. 🙂

  22. Wow, tastes just like take out! This is an excellent recipe! We subbed out for coconut aminos instead of soy sauce just to cut down on salt and added mushrooms. Fantastic!

    1. I used wheat spaghetti noodles and add mushrooms but followed the rest of the recipe….I add extra soy sauce to my bowl but absolutely love this recipe!!! Thank you!!!

  23. One question: when are you getting your own app? I would love an easier way to navigate this website on a table when not connected to the WiFi( when I go camping)

  24. My husband loves Chinese food but I’m not the greatest at cooking it at home. This recipe seemed doable even for a clumsy cook like me, with a cuisine I’m not skilled at mastering!

    So it turned out great; the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because next time I’ll double up on the veggies. I ended up using the entire package I had of bean sprouts and that was great, so I realized using more veggies would make it even better.

    My husband doesn’t like bell pepper or oyster flavors so I left them out. I ended up using a tbsp of sesame oil to mix with the noodles.

    By the way, using those noodles really made a difference in the overall dish; thank you for using them in this recipe.

    My husband asked for just a little more soy sauce flavor (added it himself) so I’ll do that with the recipe next time. It came together MUCH faster than I thought it would as well.

    Thank you again for sharing it; it’s great to know I can recreate something he loves here at home!

  25. Oh God Sabrina! Do you know how long I’ve been looking for you? I love you, and I don’t even know you!..haha…. Do you know all the gazillion places I had to look to find all I wanted and needed in one website!? All your recipes look amazing! I love the combinations of different ethnic groups! Indian, Mexican, Thai (among my very favorite..surely must have been Thai in another life!) and the copycat stuff….wow! Where were you in my 6 years in Mexico where I missed home food! All ingredients are non-boring and reading them just makes my mouth salivate! I can almost taste the finished product! You have NOOOOO idea how happy I am to find you! Wow! THANK YOU! YES! Weeeehooooo! I think I just spent 2 hours of a busy day stuck on your website…what the matter with me?!

  26. Why can’t I print this. I am old and need to make big print to read. I hit print button but it does not work.

    1. I just checked the print button on this recipe and it’s working. If you’re still not able to get it to work, you can print from the browser as well.

    1. They make a vegetarian mushroom oyster sauce. I buy Wan Ja Shan brand. Amazon sells it, Chinese grocery stores sell it, and probably more.

  27. This was a great meal! I used the vegies I had in the fridge and didn’t end up needing the additional vegetable oil. My husband doesn’t like “noodles” but had 2 helpings of this!

  28. Very good. The only issue I ran into was step 6 when I dumped the cornstarch directly into the pot and it immediately clumped up. If I’d thought about it for a second, I would have made a slurry with it and the water. In the end it was still really good though, and my super picky family all went back for seconds.

  29. I liked this however I felt that all the veggies should have been added at the same time and the garlic and ginger should have been added after the veggies were softened to avoid them burning. The onion was a bit underdone and I feel if it was added at the beginning it would have been more to my liking. I ended up adding some chili garlic sauce and a pinch of 5 spice to add a little more flavor. I also added a splash of chicken stock since the sauce was a bit thick. It helped stretch it to coat the noodles. Overall it is a good recipe and fun to personalize it to your liking. Thanks!!

  30. My local chain grocery no longer carries fresh bean sprouts because o reports of bacterial contamination. I refuse to use the canned ones…they’re HORRIBLE. I LOVE bean sprouts—-what do I do?

    1. Oh no!! That’s a bummer. Do you have a sprouts around you or possible a farmers market? Good luck on your search.

  31. We made this Lo Mein, we couldn’t find the bean sprouts anywhere, but we added broccoli and some spicy Szechuan sauce at the end. It was SUPER good and had a little kick to it!

  32. The lo mein noodles shown on pic is different (Coarser) than from the hyperlink Lo mein noddles sold on amazon, can i get clarification on this?

    1. You can use whatever you prefer. I was just trying to offer a link to those who might have an issue finding them. I hope you enjoy it!

  33. I snapped the Instructions on my phone and didn’t look at the ingredients or amounts. My store didn’t have these noodles, so I substituted with normal wide egg noodles. I cut some chicken thighs into small pieces and marinaded in Teriyaki sauce. Also added some salt and pepper. After the chicken was cooked and set aside, I stir-fried some broccoli and mushrooms for a few minutes. Then I added the red bell peppers, ginger and garlic. I more than doubled the oyster sauce because it needs the sweetness. I left out the bean sprouts and green onions because it was too many vegetables. Once everything is done, mixing it all together is important, as I’m sure someone tried to eat those noodles covered in sesame oil. lol. All-in-all, I give this 5 stars, even if I did modify it into a Teriyaki Stir-Fry Chicken Lo Mein.

  34. This is delicious. My only complaint is that it didn’t specify to salt the chicken before cooking, and the sauce isn’t enough to flavor it alone. But otherwise, fantastic. I added two tablespoons of oyster sauce and it’s wonderful!

  35. This is my favorite noodle recipe/guide! While I often adjust what veggies go into it, (usually based on what’s available), this is always my starting point. Thank u for sharing!

  36. The pictures look like there are both green onion and white onion, but unclear on if white onion. Is the 1/2 cup onions green onion? Or are there white onion too?

    1. You could, but it would be nowhere near the same. Meaning they are not an equal swap. Oyster says is rich and sweet, a thick syrupy sauce. Fish sauce is like water and has the taste and aroma of fish. They would not be relatable. You could add fish sauce, but it would not be a substitute.

  37. This looks so easy and delish! The pic makes it look like there are both large, thicker noodles and skinny ramen-like noodles. Is there both, or are the skinnier ones just the bean sprout tails?

  38. Before I start making this, quick question. I have fish sauce in the pantry but not oyster sauce, may I substitute or is oyster sauce imperative? Also, I have Tamari (even though I am not gluten free), may I substitute that for the soy? Thanks in advance!

    1. So sorry I missed this – if you haven’t made it yet, I would use Worcestershire sauce for the fish sauce and Tamari for the soy. Hope this helps!

    1. I’m so sorry to hear this. If you try this again, try rinsing the noodles until they are cool and then toss with the oil. This will cut the starch and keep them from sticking.

    2. GAMMY, sounds like you may have over cooked your noodles. Try boiling a minute less than package says. Then drain, give them a quick shake, sprinkle a bit of oil ( NOT MUCH) cook your veggies, add noodles and beat a couple eggs into it. Should be delish.!! Good luck.

  39. Great recipe! Thank you. We needed a little more spice and added more hoison sauce. Overall, great recipe to start with and tailor to your taste buds.

  40. Usually all the recipes I make from here are good. This one was a miss. The sesame flavor on the noodles was too much and cooking the veggies on the order instructed made them mushy. Would definitely suggest quickly cooking all veggies separately so as not to overcrowd the pan and also checking the amount of oils used. I feel like I wasted an entire meal on this :/.

  41. OhMyGosh — This made a HUGE ‘batch’ of Lo Mein — Absolutely DELICIOUS! Bean sprouts had gone off, so subbed in thinly sliced cabbage and added a can of water chestnuts — Someone suggested doubling the sauce – Thank you for that tip — Will NEVER eat lo mein in a restaurant again — This recipe, by far, surpassess restaurant dishes!

  42. Hi Sabria
    I made this last night. I tripled all measurements and amount so I would have leftovers throughout the week. I think the amount of cornstarch may have ruined it although the ratio to the amount of the other ingredients was accurate. The noodles were incredibly starchy.
    Even though the box did not say to I image rinsing the noodles may help and stop the cooking process so they are not overdone. If there is a way to cut down on the amount of cornstarch it may help.
    My second attempt should come out better now that I’ve learned from my mistakes.
    It is still getting a high rating because the flavor was amazing and my own mistakes caused it to be bad.

  43. this was so great! i am 12 years old and i make dinner 2x a week for my current family of 8. this was great. i added a litte less onion because i put green onions in also. My faily will love it! thanks for this great recipie!!!

  44. Hi Katie, I’m just a mom of 2 boys reading this recipe and came across your reply about how your son comes home shaken up and defensive…please take that seriously, he could be, being abused in some way at the boy Scout leaders house. That’s very scary. My ‘mom red flag’ went up right away when I read that!
    Take care.

  45. I made this today and used thigh meat instead of the breast. My husband only likes the canned Chop Suey and Lo Mein. He ate 2 servings. It’s a keeper for us. Easy to do. I’d give it 5 stars.

  46. I’m extremely intimidated by the idea of using oyster sauce since I’m not a seafood person. How necessary is it?

    1. You can use a mushroom based oyster sauce if you don’t want a seafood based one. It tastes pretty similar!

  47. Very very good. I did add 3 th brown sugar.
    I didn’t have all the veggies. But I just added a bit more of the ones I had. It worked great
    Thank you!

  48. Made this last night. When I was cooking my husband said it smells like a Chinese restaurant. We absolutely loved it. Just like a restaurant we used to go to in Detroit. Could not find it in other restaurants as good as that one in Detroit, until this recipe. Thanks Sabrina.

  49. I don’t know what I did, but the noodles were super sticky and the taste of. Sesame oil overpowered the dish. Is there anyway to fix

    1. I’m not sure why they would be sticky but you can always use a bit of water to help with that. As far as the sesame oil being to strong for you, you can use canola oil instead. Hope this helps!

  50. Just made the chicken lomein and it is DELICIOUS !! The sauce is soo good!!! My daughter loved it and she is picky!!! I used fresh assorted already cut up veggies. Your recipe was very easy to follow!! I will def be making this again!!
    Thank you!!

    1. YAY!!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! We love this recipe too. I consider it a huge win when kids will eat a recipe I write so thank you for that victory today!

  51. I made this recipe tonight with a few tweaks just because of what I had/didn’t have on hand and it was delish!! Everyone enjoyed. Definitely and do-over!

  52. It turned out great. I did a couple of things differentially but who doesnt. I added salt and pepper to the chicken before cooking. I also put more ginger than it called for but those are my personal tastes. Thank you foe this recipe

  53. This turned out really gummy. It was almost like gravy on noodles with the cornstarch slurry. And the lo mein noodles were really over cooked. I followed the instructions on the box and took them out a minute before. Not sure where I went wrong.

    1. I just made this and it was really good but my noodles also game out kind of gummy. Although the package didn’t say it, I looked up another recipe and apparently you should rinse the Lo Mein until it is cool. Not sure if you did this, but I did not. I just drained it and add the sesame oil. So I suspect the Lo Mein just kept on cooking while I was preparing the rest. I will try rinsing my noodles the next time I make this recipe!

  54. Looks good. Problem is; you can’t buy sprouts in Americans super markets any. We can’t seem to figure out how to grow them safely.

    1. I don’t know where you live but here we have oriental grocery stores that carry bean sprouts, Walmart and hy-vee has it also. H hope that helps
      .

  55. I didn’t have oyster sauce but I used fish sauce in its place. All 5 of my picky eaters loved it! I also used radicchio. This is a new favorite so thanks for this!!

  56. This was really good, and this recipe is definitely a keeper! But I wouldn’t say it’s like Chinese takeout. Definitely a lot of good flavors going on, but it seems to be missing that one extra zing that all takeout places seem to have in their lo mein. I wish I knew what it was. But I’d definitely make this again! Thanks for the recipe!

      1. Hi Sabrina, the noodles in the link do not look like the same ones used in the photo. They look thinner and I was hoping to use the thicker ones you have in your picture. Any idea where I can find them?

  57. I have my ingredients. I am making this tomorrow! What type of oyster sauce do you prefer? I bought Dragonfly premium

  58. Hi, I am cooking tomorrow & I see that oyster sauce is required.

    I am allergic, do you have any suggestions for a substitute?

    Many thanks.

    1. They do make a vegetarin oyster sauce so I’m not sure if that helps eliminate the allergy, if not you can also use soy sauce or hoisin sauce as a substitute though it will change the flavor a bit. I hope you enjoy it!

  59. We LOVED this! I used what was ” in house “… chicken, carrots, arugula, bok choy, green onion, peas, cabbage and celery. It was outstanding, better than take out for sure! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  60. I am SO pumped to make this…and 15 minutes…my soul is literally jumping for joy.

    1. It’ll change the texture but shouldn’t affect the taste. Let me know how it turns out.

  61. I would give it more stars if I could!! Absolutely delicious!!!!! Even my very picky children loved it! I felt like I was in a restaurant while eating it, I couldn’t believe I made something that delicious and authentic tasting! Thanks for the wonderful recipe! Will be making this a lot!

    1. You’ve made my day! Anytime I can get picky eaters to enjoy something I feel like I have won the lottery!

    1. You won’t want to leave it out, sorry. There is a vegetarian “oyster” sauce you can use it that’s a concern. It’s mushroom based.

  62. Can’t wait to try this. I have all ingredients except oyster sauce.Do you know if it’s noticeable if I omit it? I hate to buy it for 1 spoonful.

  63. Can’t WAIT to try this but I need to get the ingredients right.  Are the bean sprouts canned or fresh?  I’m thinking (hoping) fresh but I’m really not sure if I can find them.  Also, is it best to use Chinese cabbage or regular cabbage?  Thanks for sharing this and other recipes!

    1. I used fresh bean sprouts for this recipe and either cabbage would be fine.

      I’m so glad you’re enjoying all the recipes. 🙂

  64. Can’t wait to try this! The links for the sesame oil takes you to the soy sauce and I am curious about the authentic sesame oil and brand!

      1. Can you link a picture of your sesame oil preference – the link attached doesn’t not connect to the item.

  65. OH MY WORD! Do you think if I took out the chicken and made as directed it would still be delicious? This looks WAY better than my local chinese restaurant!

  66. Yes! I love indulgent “takeout style” dishes and homemade fast food. I’ll be making this shortly.

    I’ve been really into homemade Pad See You lately, might this be next in your takeout recipes series? 🙂
