Temp My Tummy Tuesday - Easy Chicken Lo Mein

I love eating chinese take out but sometimes it can be pretty expensive.I found this recipe for an easy chicken lo mein to make at home.You can use chicken,beef or tofu.I always use chicken,it's fast and easy.One thing I love about this recipe is you can use any veggies you like and I almost always have the ingredients on hand.
This time I already had cooked chicken,I just cut it up into pieces.

You need 1 package of Oriental ramen noodle(I used 2 for 4 servings)
chicken or your choice of meat
any veggies you like( I used broccoli,red peppers,onion,carrots,pineapple and green onions.
First take a little oil and stir fry your your carrots,they take the longest to cook.I then added the garlic,red peppers and onion and cooked for just a few minutes.
I put that in a bowl to the side since I everything didn't fit in my pan.Next,I stir fried the brocooli,pineapples and added the chicken.While the last of your ingredients are getting cooked,start a pot with boiling water and cook your packages of ramen noodles but do not add your seasoning packet.Cook your noodles just until they start to seperate then add it to the pan with the broocoli,chicken and pineapples.It should finish cooking in the pan.Add your carrots,onions and red peppers back into the pan.Clear a small space int he pan and add a little of the boiled soup water and then add your seasoning packet and soy sauce.
Mix it all together and voila!This recipe is very kid friendly.My kids love it.Hope you enjoy!

Looks great! We can't eat Chinese (unless we make it ourselves) due to nut allergies, so I love recipes like these :)
