It’s perfectly OK to prepare Chow Mein in a skillet as opposed to a wok. Just make sure to use a large one to prevent your noodles from flying off as you toss them enthusiastically!

The truth is that as long as you use the Sauce recipe along with the same amount of noodles and other ingredients (vegetables, protein, etc.) to ensure the flavor isn’t diluted, you’ll end up with a bowl of slurp-worthy noodles regardless of the protein, vegetables, or even noodles you choose.

Therefore, focus on the sauce and don’t get too attached to the specific type of noodles! The sauce, the sauce!! – Nagi x.

What goes in Chow Mein

Chow mein nearly always includes carrots, cabbage, and bean sprouts in addition to noodles, followed by your choice of protein. I’m fairly certain that chicken is the most widely consumed food, but I can’t prove it with statistics. .

Because chicken thighs are more juicy than breast and tenderloin, I prefer to use them in stir fries. When I make this with chicken breast, I always use a Chinese restaurant technique called “bi-carb,” or baking soda to tenderize the chicken.
