Easy Chicken Lo Mein

This is one of our favorite dinners. My kids can’t get enough of it.
My 2 year old eats all of the veggies and then sneaks more from her brother’s plates when they aren’t looking. It’s super easy and comes together really quick for a perfect weeknight meal.
  • 3 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 small zucchinis, cut in 1/2” wedges
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, cubed
  • 1 can baby corn
  • 16 oz. box thin spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. hot pasta water
Combine soy sauce and chicken in a bowl, stir to coat and set aside. Chop all vegetables as directed, set aside. Combine sauce ingredients (except hot pasta water. Add that just before you drain your spaghetti), set aside. Fill a large pot with water and cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, coat a large pan with the sesame oil and pour in chicken/soy sauce. Cook on medium heat until just cooked through. Add zucchini, broccoli, red pepper, and baby corn. Stir to combine and continue to cook until vegetables are just fork tender. When pasta is ready, drain and add to chicken and vegetables. Add sauce and combine everything until well coated.
