These saucy, slurpy noodles really satisfy.
Last week I decided the initial thing I’d eat if we ever got a short-term break from needing to eat gluten-free could be Arby’s Curly Fries.
As I’ve said before, there’s a gluten-free type of almost every gluten-containing meals today, but good ol’ fashioned battered then fried curly fries? GIMME.
Those and Chocolate Munchkins from Dunkin’ Donuts, B-Bops Cheeseburgers with additional mayo, Papa Johns Pizza, OP breadsticks, a cinnamon roll the dimensions of my mind from literally anywhere, and BEER THAT TASTES LIKE BEER – but who’s maintaining track?
While I find myself dreaming about doughy breadsticks, the one thing we don’t need certainly to miss down on is Chinese takeout…made at home, anyhow! Mongolian Beef Noodle Bowls, Pot Sticker Noodles Bowls, and Orange Beef and Broccoli are some for the real ways i keep my sign up for cravings from increasing, and from now on I’ve got another meal to increase the list – Gluten-Free Chicken Lo Mein.
Chicken Lo Mein had been certainly one of my very favorite Chinese sign up for dishes prior to having to get gluten-free. Greasy, twirly, greasy, chewy, did we mention oily? It absolutely was so excellent, but obviously not too healthy for you! No issue however, because by simply making Chicken Lo Mein in the home, I’m in a position to get a grip on the total amount of fat, sugar, and sodium within the meal, plus ensure it is gluten-free, too.
Prepared noodles are tossed with stir chicken that is fried veggies then tossed with a luscious sauce that is savory from gluten-free Tamari, just a little sweet through the addition of gluten-free oyster sauce and a pinch of sugar, then rounded away with sesame oil, chili sauce, and a winner of garlic. This meal is soooo good and you will feel means better about consuming a bowl that is big two (or three…or four! )
- We utilized Kikkoman Gluten-Free Oyster Sauce that I get in the normal Asian foods aisle at the food store. Oyster sauce is dense, only a little sweet, and ultra concentrated in taste. I do believe it is what makes this dish “Chicken Lo Mein” versus in the event that you simply tossed the components with gluten-free Tamari or soy sauce.
- Talking about Tamari, make sure to make use of LOW-SODIUM gluten-free Tamari or soy that is gluten-free with this meal, otherwise it’ll be too salty. I enjoy San-J gluten-free Tamari.
- Modify your lo mein with the addition of any vegetables you prefer so long as they total 4 cups. We utilized broccoli, but other great choices consist of red bell pepper, snow peas, carrots, celery, and infant bok choy.
- Make sure to have all the components prepped and measured before turning regarding the heat. This cooks that are dish 5-7 mins, as well as on high temperature, therefore there’s no time at all to chop after the components begin sizzling.
Okay – ready to eat?
Begin by dropping 8oz noodles in bridestobe usa a pot that is large of water then prepare until al dente. I’ve used both gluten-free ramen noodles in this meal, and they’re both great. I favor the texture of GF ramen noodles (i prefer King Soba Gluten-Free Brown Rice Ramen Noodles, ) but spaghetti noodles tend to be more easily available, needless to say!
Even though the noodles are cooking, add 2 chicken breasts (14oz) which were cut into slim strips, 1 Tablespoon gluten-free Tamari, 2 teaspoons cornstarch, and a pinch of white pepper to a sizable Ziplock bag then squish to combine. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large wok or 12? skillet over high heat you can add the chicken and stir fry until cooked through. Eliminate to a dish then put aside.
Include 3 Tablespoons water to your wok then, when simmering, add 4 cups broccoli florets. Protect the pan having a lid then simmer for 1 minute.
Uncover you can add another drizzle of oil along side 2 cups coleslaw mix, 3 sliced green onions, and 2 cloves minced garlic, then stir fry before the cabbage starts to wilt, 1-2 mins.
Final action will be include the chicken and drained noodles in to the wok then drizzle in a sauce that is easy produced from Tamari, oyster sauce, sesame oil, a pinch of sugar and white pepper, chili sauce, plus some cornstarch to thicken things up.
Toss through to the sauce has thickened and each noodle is covered in deliciousness.
Transfer into bowls or onto dishes then grab your chopsticks, ditch the regret, and dig in! I really hope you love this simple, healthier sign up for fake out dish – enjoy!
