Chicken Chow Mein (West Indian Style)

Recipe by  

"In the West Indies we eat chicken chow mein with lots of chile. It's usually served with plain rice. This dish has tons of flavor and is a bit different from what you'd get in a Chinese restaurant."

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add chile peppers, onion, garlic, and ginger; cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 5 tablespoons dark soy sauce; fry for 1 more minute.
  3. Cook and stir chicken in the onion mixture over high heat until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes. Add green bell pepper and carrots and cook until softened, about 5 more minutes.
  4. Gently fold noodles into chicken mixture. Mix in white pepper, 5 more tablespoons dark soy sauce, and cilantro until heated through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onion to serve.

Great dish. Was surprised about the flavors and it was exactly what I was in the mood for. Thanks!

Did not fry the onions, garlic and ginger, just sauted them in a little oil. Also, I used linguine instead of egg noodles. Worked perfectly and tasted like something from home. Thank you for the recipe that reminded me of home.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I enjoyed the taste of the fresh ginger root although I used a standard potato peeler to peel it into really thin strips that get absorbed really well during cooking. I gave this recipe 4 stars because the first time I made it I felt that it needed a little something more. Then someone recommended I add 3 tablespoons of "Iron Chef" General Tso's sauce - I added this when stir frying the chicken and the veggies together and it was divine! You can find the Iron Chef sauce series at any grocery store.

I followed the recipe exactly. Sorry but this was a lot of work for what ended up tasting like soy sauce and cilantro and not much else. Fortunately we like soy sauce but I don't think I'll be making this again. Thank you Tatiana for the chance to try your recipe.
