Vegetable Lo Mein and Orange Chicken

UPDATED: I, well okay, my husband, found the blog that i got the recipe for the Lo Mein from... More Than A Mount Full . Thanks for the great recipe!!

My husband and i both love Panda Express's Orange Chicken and Lo Mein!! But then again, who doesn't, right?? We do not have one in South Dakota and ever since we have tried it we are always trying to make it. This is the closest we have come so far! Not Panda but close!! I found the recipe for the Vegetable Lo Mein off of a blog quite a while ago but can not remember which one!!

We chose to use the Japanese noodles instead of Lo Mein. You can find them at World Market!

Wash your bok choy thoroughly... it seems to always be extremely dirty! Cut at an angle.

Add sesame oil into large wok or saute pan, add the onion and garlic. Stir fry for a few minutes until onions begin to cook. Add in your bok choy, stir to coat in oil and allow to soften up just a bit.

Once the veggies have begun to cook, add in everything else and coat with the oil. Stir fry until they are just barely cooked, you want as much crunch as you can from the veggies without them being raw. Add in your sauce and continue to get hot, mix in your cooked Lo Mein and serve immediately.

For the Orange Chicken:
Popcorn Chicken

Panda Express Orange Sauce

Add oil to a pan and get hot. Add popcorn chicken and brown slightly. Add the Panda Express orange sauce and let simmer until heated through and coated!! You may need to add a little water to the sauce.
