Turkey Chow Mein

Chow Mein is a great way to use up leftover meat and well worth keeping a few staple items in your pantry. This recipe is quick to put together and can easily be doubled or tripled for a crowd. You can have dinner on the table in 30 minutes and that includes chopping vegetables.

  • 6 oz / 170-gram package steam fried noodles boiled according to package instructions
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 1 cup celery sliced
  • 2 cups sliced cabbage (use bagged coleslaw mix to save a bit of time)
  • 1 red bell pepper julienned
  • 2 medium carrots julienned
  • 1 cup snap peas sliced
  • 1 can mushroom soup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 -3 cups leftover julienned turkey or chicken or pork
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  1. Boil the water for the noodles while you slice and prepare your vegetables. Once the water is boiling, salt it and cook the noodles and drain and set aside in a colander.
  2. Heat the oil over medium heat and add the onion first. Allow to fry for a minute or two and then add all the vegetables except for the snap peas and green onions.
  3. Stir-fry until the vegetables are tender.
  4. Add the mushroom soup and soy sauce and meat and heat through.
  5. Add the snap peas and noodles and bring to a simmer.
  6. Garnish with green onions and serve.
