Chicken Chow Mein

This stir fried noodle dish is in constant rotation in my house because it's super fast and easy to prepare, and, an added bonus, it is delicious for lunch the next day. You can make this faster than you can say "Let's order takeout", plus, it is cheaper and healthier than any restaurant version.
