Feed Your Family: More From Less. Shop smart. Cook clever.

Speedy Chicken Chow Mein

A cheap and cheerful midweek dinner that is always a crowd pleaser.
You can adapt it to suit your families tastes by add any veg you like -mushrooms, broccoli, baby corn etc, but this is all I had in at the time.
You can also bulk it out by adding beansprouts and water chestnuts too, but again, I had none in. If you like it spicy you can add a sprinkle of chilli flakes, sweet - add a little honey or sugar.
It is very adaptable. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback.
