Chicken Lo Mein

Ala Alec!

YIELD: 4 - 6 servings

TIME: 30 minutes

Non-recipe stir fry. Different every time but always delicious!

Chinese cooking wine and dark soy sauce are not necessary but really do make it taste like what you get at the restaurant or better.

This has lots of vegetables, which I think makes it better than most restaurants.

Rice vinegar is good. More sauce is always a good idea but then add more cornstarch.

Works with beef too, of course.
