My family LOVES to order the Chicken Lo Mein from our local Chinese take-out restaurant, so I created this Sesame Chicken Lo Mein to satisfy our cravings at home. It’s super easy and can be ready in less than 30 minutes. It’s so addicting that I have to stop myself from eating bowls of this stuff!
You can let the chicken marinade as long or as little as you have time for. Honestly, sometimes when I’m in a hurry, I just dunk the chicken breasts in the marinade for a few minutes. Then just brush some marinade on them before you put them under the broiler and then again when you flip them.
I’ve been making this in my Rockcrok from Pampered Chef (no affiliation). I went to my first Pampered Chef party in forever last year and ended up purchasing this pot. Does anyone else have one? A little bit pricey yes, but one of the best kitchen purchases I’ve made in a while…it’s become my “go to” pan.
This sesame chicken lo mein is fast, easy, and oh so addicting! Ready in 30 minutes, you can easily skip takeout in favor of this recipe!
