Tossed Spaghetti or Lo Mein

Lo mein simply means tossed noodle and the noodle can be any noodle. For this recipe I used spaghetti. Lo mein also includes vegetables and meat. It could be chicken, beef or pork or even seafood .. very much depending on what you like. Noodles used in this dish are usually parboiled first and toss in the sauce mixture.

  • 4-5 pieces of chicken fillet, cut bites size (I used thigh fillet)
  • 500g spagetti, cook according to instruction on the package, drain and stir with 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
