Chicken Chow Mein is a favourite at most Chinese restaurants. However, what if you could make it at home at a far cheaper cost with a lot more flavour. This recipe is simple to prep and so easy to cook. I use a wok as it speeds everything up but you can use a high sided frying pan.

This recipe makes a single chicken breast go a long way
