Chicken and Broccoli Lo Mein


This is an excellent, fast supper recipe.  If you’ve never used sesame oil, this is a good recipe to try it in.  It improves almost any stir fry.  If you haven’t tried fresh ginger in a tube, you might look for it too.  It is often found in the produce section; you may have to ask.  It’s a way to get that good flavor without wasting a ginger root, especially if you don’t use it a lot.  
We used only 6 ounces of linguine, it was plenty.  I like the way the directions with this recipe get you cooking fast.  I do combine the sauce ingredients in a small cup before I need them.                       
Chicken and Broccoli Lo Mein
  8         Ounces  Linguine -- or other long pasta
     2/3  Cup  Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast -- fresh or frozen
  1         Cup  Mushrooms
  1         Tablespoon  Salad Oil
  1         Cup  Onion -- chopped
  16       Ounces  Frozen Broccoli Flowerets
  3         Cloves  Garlic -- minced
  2         Teaspoons  Ginger -- minced
  3        Tablespoons  Soy Sauce
  1         Tablespoon  Rice Vinegar -- or white wine vinegar
  1         Tablespoon  Ketchup
  1         Teaspoon  Sesame Oil -- (dark Asian)
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, slice the mushrooms, set aside.
Heat the oil in an extra deep 12" skillet over medium heat.  Peel and coarsely chop the onion, adding it to the skillet as you chop.  Stirring the onion occasionally, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces.  When it is all cut, add it to the skillet.
Add the mushrooms, broccoli, and garlic.  Add the ginger.  Cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms release their liquid and the chicken is no longer pink in the middle, about 5-6 minutes.
Add the soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup and sesame oil to the skillet, stir well to blend.  Remove skillet from the heat.
When the pasta is done, drain it well and add it to the skillet and stir until it is coated with the sauce and combined with the vegetables.  Serve at once.

**You can use poached chicken and add it after the mushrooms have cooked for about 3 minutes.
