Instant Pot Chicken Lo Mein is so simple to make it is sure to become one of your favorites. Not only is it delicious it will also save you some bucks on takeout. Instant Pot Chicken Lo Mein is also a much healthier option.
I totally dig Chicken Lo Mein. It is definitely one of my takeout dishes of choice at the Chinese restaurants, but ever since I got an Instant Pot I don’t bother getting takeout anymore. This dish has it all. Lots of veggies like carrots, onions, and celery make this a hit. The chicken comes out juicy sweet and tender as well. If you’re a vegetarian then you can just follow the same recipe and omit the chicken. It will still be very tasty. I do that quite often myself when I’m looking for a fast lunch.
Just remember there are no rules. If you want to add some other vegetables or maybe even use shrimp this recipe will still work no problem. If you are vegan just omit the chicken and chicken broth and replace with vegetable broth. This recipe is very versatile. f you would like a less sticky version you can rinse the noodles beforehand to get rid of some of the starch.
