  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

For the Lo Mein:

  • 8 ounces lo mein or whole grain spaghetti noodles, cooked according to package directions and drained
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips

  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced (about 2 cups sliced)

Instructions

  1. Begin cooking noodles according to package directions.  While noodles are cooking, combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine.  Set aside.
