I am not a food blogger or photographer, please excuse the barbaric photos.
A few months ago Ally found this recipe for Chinese Lo Mein. We tried it out and loved it. I’ve made a few adjustments and have now switched out the peanut butter for PB2. The original recipe is here.
- Chicken, I use chicken breast, cut up into bite size pieces and saute it in my wok with Coconut oil
- Coconut oil or Olive oil
- Noodles, I use Linguine but you can use whatever you like
- Broccoli Slaw
- Shredded Carrots
- Green onion to garnish
Peanut Butter Sauce: I usually double the sauce recipe
- 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter or 4 tablespoons of PB2 with 2 tablespoons of water
- 2 Tablespoons of hot water
- 3 Tablespoons light soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil (I use olive oil)
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Don’t you love my empty box? I didn’t think to take a picture before I emptied it.
You can use a wok or big sauce pan. My wok’s nonscratch surface started flaking off so it went in the trash. I used a sauce pan last night. I saute the chicken in coconut oil then add the broccoli slaw and shredded carrots to the pan, let it cook down a little and soften the veggies. Boil the noodles.
To make the sauce:
The PB2 ratio is 2 T powder to 1 T water. Since I double the sauce I used 8 T powder and 4 T water. Then add the hot water, soy sauce, oil and spices (all doubled). Mix it up until it’s all smooth.
Once the noodles are done, add in the chicken and veggies and pour the sauce on. Toss it real well and add the green onions at the end. You can also add fresh garlic and onions to the chicken when you saute it or try different veggies.
I love the texture of this dish with the crunchy veggies and the noodles. The peanut butter just gives it an extra kick.
I decided to sub the peanut butter for PB2 because of the fat and calorie content. In a doubled sauce recipe: the reduced fat peanut butter has 400 calories and 26g fat; the PB2 has 180 calories and 6g fat. Not to mention lower carbs, no saturated fat, lower sodium and lower sugar, per serving. We got 6-7 good size servings out of this dish.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
