Chicken Lo Mein

Not exactly a very authentic recipe, I adapted one-off of Kraft’s website and made a delicious and very easy meal. It would adapt to whatever vegetables you like and as well any kind of meat or tofu. I hadn’t made chicken in a long time, I found some nice natural chicken and used it.

Chicken Lo Mein


  • 12 to 13 ounce package multi-grain spaghetti (broken in half)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
  • 14 to 16 ounce bag frozen bell pepper strips, thawed and roughly chopped
  • 1 large onion, peeled and quartered, sliced
  • 2 tsp diced garlic (about 4 cloves)
  • 1 cup lower sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup light Asian Toasted Sesame salad dressing (or similar)
  • ¼ cup natural chunky peanut butter (used Adam’s)
  • ¼ cup lower sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro, diced (freeze-dried or fresh)


Bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook spaghetti for time on package, drain.

Meanwhile heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add in the oil and the chicken, sauté until turning crispy golden. Transfer to a bowl with any juices. Drizzle a little more oil if needed in the pan, turn to high and add the peppers and onion, sauté until tender, turn down to medium-low and add in the garlic. Cook for a minute, add back in the chicken (with juices) and heat through.

Whisk the chicken broth through red pepper flakes together in a bowl, add to the skillet, bring to a quick boil, turn down to medium-low heat, add in the cooked spaghetti and toss to coat. Take off the heat, add in the peanuts and cilantro, toss to combine.

Serves 6.




  1. Nothing wrong with altering a “classic” recipe. I’ve done this many times. I just can’t stand the “cream of ____ soups” that are in every other Kraft recipe, lol!

    • Lol..I know that feeling! I can handle maybe 3-4 cans a year of “cream of” soups and then it has to be the lower sodium version. I grew up with way too many mystery casseroles 😉

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
