The main difference between chow mein and lo mein is that different methods are used to make these stir-fry noodles. Both chow mein and lo mein use wheat-flour egg noodles. More authentic chow mein noodles are fried to crispness, while lo mein noodles are boiled to softness. The noodles themselves have similar nutritional value, but whether a chow mein or lo mein dish is healthy depends on the ingredients used with them in a stir fry. (Info courtesy – diffen

Ingredients:-
Serves – 2

Spaghetti – 1/2 packet
Olive Oil – 3 tbspn
Bone less chicken breast pieces – 250 gms
Red onions – 1 small, chopped
Carrots – 1 small, chopped
Green bell peppers – 1 small, chopped
Pepper powder – 1 1/2 tbspn(adjust as per requirement)
Teriyaki sauce – 1 tbspn(if you don’t have teriyki sauce you can use soy sauce)
Fish sauce – 1 tspn(I skipped this, as I could’nt find it and used salt. Do not use salt if using fish sauce)
Maggi Seasoning – 1 tspn( I used the one from the noodels packet)
Salt – per taste
Corn flour – 1 tspn(dissolved in 1 tspn of water)
Roasted peanuts – for garnish

Methos of Preparation:-

1. Cook spaghetti as per pack instructions. Cook them al dente. If you over cook the spaghetti the dish will loose it’s wonderful texture and taste. Once spaghetti is cook al dente, immediately drain water and place it under running water to stop cooking. Rub the cooked spagetti with few tsps of olive oil. Keep aside.

My Notes-
1. Regular egg noodles can be used in place of spaghetti.
2. Vegetables like celery stalk, red bell peppers, brocolli, snow peas can be used.
