  • 2 cups fried tofu balls sliced in half
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs skinless boneless, sliced thinly
  • 1 pack Cantonese Steamed Chow Mein Noodles
  • 1 cup carrot sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 2 cups chinese broccoli chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced into thin pieces
  • cup avocado oil for frying

Chicken Marinade

Noodle sauce


  • Marinate your sliced chicken.
  • Mix together your ingredients for your noodle sauce. Note: There may be extra sauce but I decided to provide a recipe for more sauce than less. If you prefer less saucy noodles, only use 1.5 cups water, 4 tbsp oyster sauce, 2 tbsp cornstarch.
  • In a hot non-stick pan over high heat, add your avocado oil. Then add your fresh cantonese chow mein noodles. Fry on each side until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Make sure you check your noodles every now and then to prevent burning.
  • Once the noodles are crispy, transfer to a large serving plate.
  • In the same pan over high heat, add 1 tsp of avocado oil and fry your chicken. Fry until ¾ of the way cooked.
  • Add in your fried tofu balls. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Then add in all your vegetables. Fry until veggies are softened.
  • Lower heat and stir in your noodle sauce quickly. Do not let this set or it'll solidify.
  • Then pour noodle sauce over your noodles and enjoy!
