I have made a beef and broccoli lo mein for years. We really like it, but I wanted to come up with a chicken version. I thought that a chicken version would be really good.
I tweaked the recipe in order to make it work better for chicken. What I came up with is a recipe my family loves.
I like this recipe because it is a meal in one. You have meat, vegetables, and pasta in one. You don’t need to fix anything else to go with it.
This recipe is a bit long, but it really is not hard. It is pretty easy and can easily be made in 30 minutes or less.
Chicken and Bacon Lo Mein
Chicken, bacon, and pasta combined in a delicious dinner.
- 1/2 pound sliced bacon, diced
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
- 1 cup broccoli florets, cut into pieces
- 1 cup cauliflower, cut into pieces
- 1 medium carrot, cut into thin 2-inch strips
- 1 small onion, cut into wedges
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3/4 cup cold water
- 1/2 pound thin spaghetti, cooked and drained
- In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove to paper towels to drain. Discard drippings. In the same skillet, stir-fry chicken in 1 tablespoon oil until no longer pink, about 2 minutes.
- Remove chicken and pan juices.
- In the skillet, saute broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, onion, garlic and ginger in remaining oil for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
- Dissolve bouillon in boiling water; stir into vegetables. Stir in soy sauce and chicken with pan juices.
- Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in bacon and spaghetti. Serve immediately.

We were just talking about trying to make lo mein the other night! (We finally broke down and got a rice cooker, too.) Thanks for sharing this recipe, Lynn.

I love any chinese type food recipes. I will have to try this one. It looks yummy!
This looks great! I love that it is made with ingredients that I already have on hand. We made your spinach artichoke dip a few days ago and loved it! Thanks so much for the recipes.
I’d love to have the beef lo mein recipe as well. This chicken dish looks terrific!
Tried this tonight – very good! Thanks for sharing. Even my highly fussy boy at least ate the chicken if not the noodles.

I made this for my family tonight and I LOVED it!! My husband and stepdaughter liked it a lot, too! My picky eaters ate the chicken, bacon & noodles.
@Lori A., Oh yea! I added water chestnuts because I like them. 🙂
I know its just a typo, but it says add soy sauce and beef.
Thanks for catching that and for letting me know. I just fixed it.
