How to make Cantonese Style Chicken Chowmein Recipe

  1. To begin making the Cantonese Style Chicken Chowmein recipe, wash and clean the chicken. Add pepper powder, little salt, 1 teaspoon garlic and ginger mix well and set aside to marinate for about 30 minutes.

To cook the noodles 
  1. Heat a saucepan with 2 cups of water, a pinch of salt and a few drops of oil, on high heat. 

  2. Once the oil comes to a rolling boil, reduce the flame to medium-high and add the noodles into it. 

  3. Allow it to cook for a couple of minutes, just about about soft, ensuring it does not get over cooked. 

  4. Turn off the flame and drain off the excess water using a colander. 

  5. Hold the colander under running water to cut off the heat and stop the cooking process of the noodles. 

  6. Once the water is completely drained off, transfer the noodles to a bowl, grease your hands with cooking oil and run it through the noodles, to avoid the noodles sticking to each other. 

To toss the noodles 
  1. Now in a wok/kadai heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add marinated chicken pieces and cook until chicken is cooked. Remove chicken from the wok and add remaining oil into the same wok.

  2. Add 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, and sauté for 10 seconds. Add white spring onions and sauté for 30 seconds.

  3. Cut all the vegetables into 3 inch strips. Add all the cut vegetables into the wok and toss for a minute.

  4. Add the sauces and mix well. Toss. Finally add the cooked noodles and toss well. Add salt and pepper powder to taste. Toss it well.

  5. Finally add some green spring onions on top for garnish and serve immediately.
