Clean Chicken Lo Mein

Clean Eating - Chicken Lo Mein

As always, I hit another Pinterest jackpot. Sometimes it a miss but usually Pinterest is a hit for me. This recipe I found was nothing less than awesome! I am not a huge fan of Chinese foods but I really liked this one. My little one also really enjoyed it as well, which is rather surprising since he is two! Aside from the sodium in the soy sauce this recipe is pretty healthy and very filling. Hope you love it as much as we did!

·  ½ lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into small chunks
·  1 - 13.25 to 16 oz. box of linguini or fettuccini pasta, broken in half (I used whole wheat)
·  4 medium carrots, peeled and cut in thin 3 inch long strips
·  1 medium red bell pepper, cut in thin 3 inch long strips
·  4 cloves garlic, minced
·  ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
·  1 teaspoon garlic powder
·  1 teaspoon corn starch
·  1 tablespoon sugar
·  ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
·  4 cups organic chicken broth
·  2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1.     Add the chicken, then the pasta, then the remaining ingredients to a large stockpot and cover. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir and reduce the heat to medium-low.
2.     Cook covered for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook until most of the liquid is gone and the chicken is cooked through.
3.     Remove the lid and let the dish rest for 5 minutes before serving.
