Serves: 2

Ingredients
  • 1 medium (8-10 ounces) boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced thinly
  • 1 small onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup cocktail peanuts
  • 4 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Maggi seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Instructions
  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. I use "pan-size" spaghetti, which is merely regular spaghetti broken in half lengthwise (which is better for this dish). Drain and set aside.
  2. Mix the teriyaki sauce, fish sauce, Maggi and the sesame oil in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. Heat Calphalon 8-inch omelette pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and heat through.
  5. Add chicken to the pan, stirring constantly until cooked through and golden in color. Add the celery, onion, garlic and bell pepper, stirring until celery turns bright green.
  6. Add the cooked spaghetti and the teriyaki mixture, tossing so the spaghetti is well coated.
  7. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir contents of the pan well. Cook for 1 minute.
  8. Serve immediately.

The children are at their cousins for the weekend which means the man of the house and I have a few quiet days to ourselves so this was a perfect meal for us to have for dinner tonight. We did not have any celery but that is the only change to the recipe as shown. It is quick and simple to make and the tastes are oh so delicious. The Thai flavors provide such a delicious background and next time we will make it with rice, instead of noodles, to see how that works.

What a great recipe! My husband and I both love Lo Mein, so this recipe was perfect for us. We did leave out the chicken because we like veggie Lo Mein. It was great! I think you could substitute beef or pork as well for a different combo. Anyway you choose to make this, I think it would come out great!

This is great! It doesn't have a lot of ingredients that are hard to find. Maggi seasoning is a sauce like soy, but not exactly soy sauce. Look in your Asian food section for it. I think it needs more bell pepper. Both red and green. I love my peppers.

This was so flavorful and fresher without the heavy gravy sauce that you get when you order Chinese take-out. I added sliced water chestnuts because I like the extra crunch. You could also add sliced bamboo shoots, too.
