Cantonese style cooking is one of the most popular Chinese cooking which originated from Guangdong Province. Pan fried noodles are topped with chicken strips and poured with luscious vegetable gravy on top.

As much as I love the pan fried noodles, I prefer to use stirred noodles with whole lot of vegetables and chicken to go with it for healthy eating. A quick and easy weeknight dinner that you can cook in less than 30 minutes and it is way better than Chinese take out that you would go for. The flavors of home made chowmein is the best!
