This is how we make popular Chinese chicken noodles

These days we are following the best performances of our athletes in Beijing, who delight us every day with new and new successes. However, the Olympics also encouraged us to look at Chinese recipe collections. Asian food, which is somewhat tailored to Europeans in Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese restaurants, has a characteristic sweet-salty taste and a delicate texture.

You have probably already tried some of their silk dishes, which are usually served with a portion of rice. Asia is also known for its noodles and this time we will prepare one of the recipes for them. We will treat to a Chinese dish called chow mein, which in some provinces is also known as lo mein. It is a mixture of vegetables and chicken, baked together with excellent noodles and seasoned with soy sauce and oysters. Their fusion brings to mind this typical Asian umami. Corn starch will take care of the silky structure.

The recipe for this great and simple dish can be found below, but there really will be no doubt, for a better show we are adding a video of a Chinese chef. Run well or hǎo wèikǒu, as you wish in China!

For me, the kitchen is a place where I can completely relax and detach myself from the world while cooking, and at the same time a great backdrop for relaxed companionship.
