Healthy Chicken Lo Mein Recipe

From the Fit Community: Healthy Chinese Lo Mein Recipe

Being hungry and busy can mean a dinner that's only a delivery away. But before your gut guides you to the takeout menus, try whipping up this quick and easy chicken lo mein recipe from Dara8182, who posted it in our Healthy Recipe group.

Takeout Makeover! I decided to tackle a take out favorite and modify it with whole wheat spaghetti, lean chicken breast and a ton of fresh veggies. Lower in calories, fat and sodium, this is a tasty dinner that is quick and simple. Next time you reach for a takeout menu, try making this instead. Vegetarians can substitute tofu for chicken or just add some extra veggies.

Read on for more on how to make this healthy lo mein!

Ingredients:
12 oz whole wheat spaghetti
1lb boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced into 1" chunks
1 cup snow peas, washed and sliced in half
2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into 2" matchsticks
3 scallions, washed and sliced
2 medium shitake mushrooms, washed and sliced
2 cups fresh bean sprouts
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp fresh garlic, peeled and chopped
2/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar (or rice wine)
1 tsp sriracha sauce (optional)
