Chowmein Pasta is a traditional Chinese delicious dish, it can cook within 30-40 minutes_ origin from Chinese cuisine, it is made with marinated fried chicken strips along with sautéed veggies with a few spices and sauces
Comforting Chinese made with lean white meat protein, colorful vegetables, and stir-fried noodles tossed in a savory sauce. You can’t go wrong with restaurant-quality Chicken Chow Mein! One of the most popular stir-fried noodles the family goes crazy for

Usually, people prepare chow mein with spaghetti/noodles but here I made some changes in this recipe and cook in my style_firstly I didn’t use ketchup as I don’t like using it in chow mein or any other type of Chinese cooking  secondly I cooked chow mein with pasta instead of noodles or spaghetti 
This will likely become one of your go-to dinners recipes because it's very easy to make yet it tastes so good besides wholesome recipe

A big bowl of homemade chicken chow mein is way more satisfying and can be made with ease_tender pieces of chicken breast are marinated in salt, black pepper, cornflour, and white egg and then deep fried until lightly-browned_to add some crunch a colorful combination of chopped vegetables like carrots, cabbage, spring onion, green or red capsicum are added, an authentic savory sauce coats each chewy Italian pasta for an irresistible dish the whole we love

Ingredients that are used in the recipe:
Meat: I used broiler chicken breast but the best part of the chicken is thigh meat that is also tender and juicy_i prefer using thigh instead of breast
Veggies:green cabbage,carrot,spring onion and capsicum are added to the recipe but you can use any other veggies of your choice like peas, yellow and red pepper, purple cabbage and beans  
Sauces: red chili sauce, soya sauce, white vinegar, Worcestershire sauce along with sesame oil which is the main ingredient of this recipe_adding sauce of your choice is up to you
I skipped adding ketchup and alternatively added chili sauce in my recipe as I understand red chili sauce can enhance the taste of chow mein rather than ketchup
Ketchup is considered as the main ingredient of the recipe alternatively can be used chili sauce or garlic sauce as well
Spices: I used black pepper, salt, cornflour, white pepper, and chicken powder_you can use red chili flakes too if you are a spice lover
Chowmein noodles: in this recipe can be used in many verities of noodles, spaghetti, egg noodle, Italian pasta or macarons as well
I used Italian pasta in the recipe

Tips for cooking:
I always cook the chicken first in hot oil to create a lightly golden surface. The meat also gets an extra layer of texture from the small amount of cornstarch added to the marinade. The lean poultry cooks in just a few minutes and then gets transferred to a plate so that it doesn’t dry out.

What vegetables go in chow  mein:
Adding in nutritious vegetables brings vibrant colors to the dish and more texture contrast. The cabbage, carrots, capsicum, and onions are sliced thin so they cook quickly and blend in nicely with everything
