I got the basic recipe from Baker by Nature (gosh, her photos are soooo pretty! This, my friends, is the benefit of pre-planning and cooking during the day!) Her recipe was good, but I made some tweaks (namely frozen broccoli and no eggs!) Here's my version of Sriracha Chicken + Broccoli Lo-Mein:
For the Chicken + Broccoli
frozen broccoli (I used one bag) You can also use fresh broccoli.
1 cup of shredded carrots (you can also add pea pods too)
1- 1.5 pounds of chicken breast cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sriracha hot sauce*
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
For the Lo-Mein Noodles
1 package lo-mein noodles
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 Tablespoons Sriracha hot sauce*
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 green onions, sliced thinly
1. If you use frozen broccoli, defrost it in your microwave. (My microwave has a fancy "frozen veggie" setting that defrosts them without cooking them to death) If you're using fresh broccoli, bring a pot of water to boil and add the broccoli. Cook for four or five minutes (you don't want to over cook it, you want it crisp!) Drain it and set it aside.
2. Grab a small bowl and whisk together the following: sesame oil, soy sauce, sriracha, water, sugar, and cornstarch. Set aside.
3. In a large skillet or pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and let it brown. Once the chicken in browned add the broccoli and carrots. Cook and stir for a few minutes, then add the bowl of sauce. Give everything a good stir to coat the ingredients. Cook for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.
4. Time to make the Lo-Mein! Bring a large pot of water to boil (if you're able to handle multiple pots at one time, maybe start boiling the water at the same time or just after the broccoli) Once it's boiling, add the lo-mein noodles and cook according to the directions on the package (my particular package said to cook for 4 minutes)
5. While you're waiting for the water to boil, make the sauce for the lo-mein noodles. Combine and whisk together soy sauce, sriracha, sesame oil, grated ginger, and brown sugar. Set aside.
6. Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a skillet on medium heat. Drain the noodles and add them to the skillet. Add the sauce and stir for a few minutes to make sure the noodles are completely coated.
7. Add the chicken + broccoli to the noodles and then add sliced green onions. (I gave everything a good mix) Voila!
