Ingredients:

Chicken

  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless chicken breasts, chopped or thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • 2 tsp. grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce or coconut aminos

Directions:

Place the chicken and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Halfway through cooking, add in the ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. Once chicken is no longer pink, turn off heat and keep warm.

In a large skillet, add the oil, onion, carrots, and mushrooms, and cook until tender. Then toss in the zucchini noodles. Season with salt and pepper. Keep on low heat.

In a small bowl, whisk the Lo Mein Sauce ingredients together. Taste and adjust as needed. Pour this over the veggies in the large skillet, then add in the chicken. Toss all together and serve.
