HG So Low Low Mein

HG So Low Low Mein

Introduction

***Sodium Count for Sparkpeople is Wrong. HG has it as 925mg not the 1,441.3 mg Spark came up with****

Everyone loves lo mein. How can you not? It's basically Asian "spaghetti" packed with all kinds of deliciousness. But who on Earth wants to deal with the horrendous calorie and fat counts of regular old lo mein? CRAZY PEOPLE, that's who. Don't be crazy -- or LAZY. Head to the kitchen and whip up some of HG's So Low Mein w/Chicken. BTW, this recipe also rocks with soy "chicken" strips, lean beef, pork tenderloin, shrimp, and tofu. Wok on, people!

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    3 bags House Foods Tofu Shirataki, original spaghetti shape
    One 10 - 16 oz. bag frozen Chinese-style stir-fry mixed veggies (with broccoli, water chestnuts, etc.)
    8 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast; cut into strips
    1 cup bean sprouts
    1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
    1/2 cup thinly sliced zucchini
    1/2 cup chopped scallions
    1/4 cup shredded carrots
    1/4 cup reduced sodium or light soy sauce
    1 tbsp. cornstarch
    2 tsp. chicken-flavored powdered consommé/bouillon (like the one by Osem, which can be found with the kosher items at the supermarket)
    2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda)

Directions

Rinse and drain Tofu Shirataki noodles VERY well. Dry them thoroughly, and run a knife or kitchen shears through 'em a few times (so noodles aren't as long). Set aside. To make sauce, combine soy sauce, cornstarch, consommé/bouillon, and sweetener with 1/2 cup of hot water. Stir well and set aside. Bring a large pan or a wok sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add chicken and all the veggies (the frozen and the fresh ones). Stirring frequently, cook for 5 - 7 minutes (until chicken is cooked throughout and frozen veggies are heated). Pour sauce into pan/wok, stir well, and continue to cook until sauce has thickened. Lastly, add in the noodles, and cook until entire dish is thoroughly mixed and heated. MAKES 4 SERVINGS
