What’s your favorite dish that comes to mind when you think about comfort food? Ours is definitely anything with noodles or pasta. We eat a large variety of noodles in our house which you can check out HERE.
It’s one of my favorite dishes to clean out the fridge because you can use up all the lingering veggies hanging around. Plus it’s so easy to customize by adding in your favorite protein. This Easy Chicken Lo Mein is our favorite takeout dish and I decided one day to toss everything into my slow cooker.
Best. Decision. Ever.
- If you are using fresh pre-cooked noodles (I used pre-cooked fresh Lo-Mein noodles), you simply throw the noodles into the slow cooker and turn your slow cooker on high with the rest of the ingredients and sauce for about 10 minutes so the flavors can meld together. Make sure you add the fresh pre-cooked or cooked dry noodles NEAR the end or JUST PRIOR to serving will ensure that the noodles will NOT get too soft and mushy.
- Feel free to make it your own with your favorite vegetables. I used baby bok choy and carrots here and I have also used snow peas, baby corn or bell peppers successfully in the past.
- Use pork instead of chicken or extra firm or deep fried tofu for a meatless meal. You can find the vegetarian version with extra firm tofu here.
The flavors are amazing and as authentic as you’ll get and you won’t believe that this was ALL made in the slow cooker, it’s the best ever and is by far the MOST popular recipe on this blog.
The original photos were taken that first night I made them on a whim since I didn’t really plan on posting the recipe. I also had no idea it would have been such a hit with my readers and has now been repinned a total of over a million times! I have since updated the photos and the recipe to make it easier.
