Chicken Lo-Mein

Chicken Lo-Mein

Chinese food lovers, this is a qucik-n-easy dish for you. its filling, tasty and can be made easily at home. i have used the pancit kanton noodles (a filippino take on chinese lo mein), but you an use any type of chinese egg noodle for this dish. also, the traditional lo-mein preparation calls for a sauce to poured over the stir fired ingredients towards the end of the cooking process... i have tried to simplify it, and made this my fast-track take on it...
