Author : Foodeva Marsay
1 kg Chicken fillets, cut into strips
1 Large onion, chopped
1 teaspoon Ginger/Garlic paste
½ teaspoon ground green chillies(optional)
¼ teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 teaspoon Chillie powder
1 teaspoon Cumin powder
1 teaspoon salt/or to taste
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce (plus excess for tossing stage)
3 Tablespoons White Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Sugar
A Pinch of Egg Yellow Food Colouring
1 Cup Julienned Carrots(I use the ready bought julienne carrots)
1 Cup Tri-Coloured Julienned Peppers
Spring Onions/Parsley for garnishing
🍝Marinate the chicken fillets in all the spices,sugar,vinegar,colour and Worcestershire Sauce for 30 minutes
🍝Prepare Spaghetti according to pack instructions
🍝Heat a little olive oil and add Onions
🍝Sauté until light brown in colour
🍝Add chicken to the onions and cook over low heat together with ¼ cup water until water burns out.
🍝Stir Fry the vegetables in a little oil/butter (I season them lightly while stir-frying)
🍝Now add this to chicken, followed by the boiled spaghetti
🍝Gently toss together well
🍝For a more Authentic darker look to the dish, I sprinkle in more Worcestershire Sauce on at this stage.(as little or much as you prefer)
🍝Chicken Chow Mein is ready to be served garnished with chopped spring onions/parsley.
Personal Notes from Foodeva Marsay
📍I usually Break the batch of Spaghetti halfway down its length, makes a little go a long way (shhhh…it’s our little secret), Do not add all of the Spaghetti during the tossing stage, we want a good balance of chicken-vegetables-pasta/noodles. Excess boiled spaghetti freezes well in a zip-lock freezer bag.
📍Try adding 1 Cup of shredded Cabbage and/brocolli/baby corns during the Stir Fry point in recipe, Remember these are just optional, The recipe is just perfect without it too.
📍Try Shredding/Grating your carrots if you have younger kids.
📍Soy Sauce/Oyster Sauce/Fish sauce may be used instead of the Worcestershire Sauce.
📍Why not give Beef/Prawns a try if Chicken is not what you prefer.
