Stir fry is a once-a-week type of thing. It’s great in lunches, for dinner and it feels so complete. You have crisp vegetables, golden-brown chicken, and light buckwheat noodles. It takes well to a simple sauce like soy, honey, and hoisin or a more elaborate one. hot or cold stir fry is always a good choice.

TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST GARLIC CHICKEN LO MEIN

separate everything: if you’re making this dish on the stovetop don’t overcrowd your pan. start with cooking the chicken to doneness in a hot skillet, followed by the vegetables then the cooked noodles. otherwise, you’ll create too much steam removing the beautiful brown color from the chicken and it won’t allow for any colorization for the veggies.

the noodles.: undercook your noodles in salted water for a minute or two so they still have time to get mixed in with chicken and vegetables. buckwheat noodles are pretty fragile so definitely avoid overcooking. have the stir fry ready to receive the noodles within a couple of minutes of straining. the noodles tend to stick and can be unforgiving. if they’ve started to clump start pouring on the liquids and gently incorporate.

oil: in addition to the butter add a high smoke point oil. like canola, wok oil, or vegetable. the oil will help fortify the butter so that it doesn’t burn. it still can so don’t have the heat too high, but it’ll help.
