    I love the noodles they serve at my local hibachi restaurant, to the point I am craving them. Are they the same noodles used in lo mein? I’ve searched the internet, but I’m obviously looking in the wrong place! Help! I really need to find a reciepe for hibachi noodles.

    There is this lady in my house under rent and when she cooks, it stinks up the whole house. For example deep fried chicken,(the first time she cooked in the house) I thought she was making Shrimp Lo Mein with way too much garlic! And another time was that she was making stew and I thought it was spaghetti with too much pepper! I NEED HELP WITH THAT STINKY FOOD like how to make the stench not go in my room!

    I’m having a themed dinner party with 8 people, and I need 2 more dishes to make. Any suggestions? I’m already making Sweet and Sour chicken with noodles/fruit/veggies on ChowMein noodles, chicken fried rice, and lo mein noodles in a soy sauce.
    Anything without pork would be fabulous :) Thanks tons!

    I will try to be as specific as I can. I just want an estimate so I know what I am allowed to eat that day when I have this dinner. It’s Chinese Food.

    2 Cups of Chicken Lo Mein noodles.
    1 Cup of General Tao Chicken.
    1 Large Chicken Ball (Maybe 50 grams?).
    2 Tablespoons (30 mL) of Sweet and Sour Sauce.

    If anyone could give me a rough estimate it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

    I have some frozen chicken thawing out right now in the fridge. I am only 16 so please, don’t make it to complicated. Can’t use a grill, it’s 5 degrees out. So anything i can cook in the pan on the stove, like sautee it. I was thinking like a lo mein maybe. I have pasta and soy sauce and veggies. Any other ideas?

    I’m having a little cheat day from my diet and plan to order chinese food. I don’t want to go too overboard so what would be the healthier choice?

    Beef and broccoli with a spring roll or chicken lo mein with a spring roll?

    Any other suggestions would be great too. Thanks!

    I want to cook a chicken lo-mein, but a healthier version.
    I bought chicken strips, noodles, veggies, olive oil, teriyaki sauce and garlic.
    How do I do it? Can I cook the chicken in with everything else or separate?
