Easy Chicken Lo Mein

For the Sriracha Roasted Veggies:
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, quartered
1/2 red pepper, sliced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce

For the sauce:
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons hot water

For the lo mein:
8 ounces lo mein noodles, fresh or dried
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound boneless chicken breast, sliced thin
1/2 head green cabbage, shredded (about 3 cups)
1 large carrot, grated

For the garnish:
Fresh scallions, chopped
Sesame seeds

If making the Sriracha Roasted Vegetables: Heat the oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, toss quartered mushrooms and red peppers with the sesame oil and sriracha. Spread out on a baking sheet.

While you make the Chicken Lo Mein, bake for 15 minutes until tender and blistered in spots.

Stir the sauce ingredients together and set near the stove.

Cook the lo mein noodles: Bring a large amount of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until tender, usually around 4 minutes, but check the package directions for the noodles you are using.

Drain the noodles and toss with sesame oil to prevent sticking.

Cook the chicken: Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the vegetable oil once that’s hot, add the chicken. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the vegetables: When chicken is cooked, add cabbage and carrots, and continue to stir and cook until the veggies wilt and the liquid they release is mostly evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the noodles and sauce: Add noodles along with sauce and stir with the chicken and veggies to combine. The sauce should coat the noodles and other ingredients. If the dish seems too dry, add more water.

Taste and adjust the flavor to your liking. It might need another dash of soy sauce, for example.

Serve: Serve the Chicken Lo Mein topped with scallions, sesame seeds, and roasted veggies.

Chicken Noodle Soup Casserole

8 ounces of wide egg noodles
2 heaping cups of chicken meat
6 tablespoons of butter or chicken fat
3 carrots, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 onion, diced
6 cloves of garlic, minced
2 teaspoons tomato paste
6 tablespoons of flour
2 cups broth
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
At least half a sleeve of saltines
2 tablespoons of butter

Cook the noodles per the package instructions, drain them, and set them aside. Melt the chicken fat in a pan over medium-high heat, add the vegetables (but not the garlic), season them with salt and pepper, and cook them until they are soft and ever-so-slightly browned. Add the garlic and cook until it is golden and fragrant. Add the tomato paste, mix it in to the vegetables, and cook until it darkens in color. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir until everyone is coated with the white powder. Cook it for a minute, to get rid of that raw flour flavor, decrease the heat, then slowly add the broth, stirring constantly to make a gravy. Do the same with the milk. Add the Worcestershire sauce, season as needed with salt and pepper, and stir in the chicken.

Add everything—including those noodles—to a casserole dish and mix it up good. Crush those saltines, and toss them with two tablespoons of melted (salted) butter. Sprinkle that on top. Place the whole mess in a 375-degree oven, and cooke until the sauce is bubbling on the edges and the saltine topping is golden and crispy.

CopyKat Olive Garden Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara

8 ounces chicken tenders
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg
2 teaspoons water
6 ounces shrimp
12 ounces bucatini or spaghetti pasta
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup bacon
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1/2 red bell pepper cut into rings
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 egg beaten
Instructions
Prepare chicken tenders by combining flour, Panko bread crumbs, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix breading until it is well blended. On another bowl combine 1 egg and 2 teaspoons water, stir until well mixed. Dip chicken in dry breading mix, then egg wash, and then back into the breading mix, and allow to dry on a rack. Allow the breaded chicken tenders to rest for about five minutes before cooking. Place 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken fingers and cook for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until chicken is browned, and cooked through. Set the chicken to the side.

Cook shrimp in a small pot in boiling water for about 2 to 3 minutes. Shrimp is done when it becomes pink.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Prepare carbonara sauce by placing butter and lean bacon in a skillet. Cook over medium heat when the butter melts, add garlic and red bell pepper. Saute pepper, bacon, until the bacon is cooked through. Add heavy cream to skillet with Parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheese has been melted. When the cheese has melted add cooked pasta and remove from heat. Stir in 1 beaten egg, and stir quickly.

The residual heat of the pasta and sauce will cook the egg. To serve place pasta and sauce on the plate. Add a few pieces of chicken tenders and shrimp to each serving. Garnish with additional cheese and pepper if desired.

1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups whole or 2% milk
