Some things, if you want 'em done right, you need to do 'em yourself. If you know the disappointment of opening up a takeout carton of chow mein and finding spaghetti, then we're on the same page. Chow mein means different things in different places, but it should never mean spaghetti. For this West Coast style chow mein, rice ramen is a great approximation that's very easy to find these days. If you can find some standard, fresh ramen, you'll get even closer to the real deal.

What you will need

8 oz. Rice Ramen

1/2 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken breast

2 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil

3 cups Slaw Mix

2 Tbsp Soy Sauce

1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce

1 bunch Scallions, optional
