Just like every other parent, I need quick and delicious. Under 30 minutes is optimum, especially if you work outside the home or have kids in various extracurricular activities.Try this easy chicken recipe the next time you're in a bind to get dinner on the table quickly.

What you'll need

  • 1 tablespoon oil-sesame or peanut oil
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into thin slices
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or teriyaki sauce
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger or 1 teaspoon powder
  • 1 3-ounce package chicken flavor ramen noodle soup
  • 1 1-lb bag frozen mixed oriental vegetables
  • 1/4 cup water

How to make it

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken and cook, stirring frequently, until no longer pink.

  2. Add vegetables and lid. Cook until vegetables are cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  3. In the meantime, cook the noodles (without the flavoring packet) according to package directions. Drain.

  4. Add soy sauce, garlic, ginger and seasoning packet to water. Mix well. Pour over chicken and vegetables, add noodles and toss to mix.

Slow Cooker Pork Lo Mein from the Betty Crocker site!

Slow Cooker Pork Lo Mein

You Need:


1
small onion, cut into wedges
2
pounds pork arm steak, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
1
envelope (1 ounce) chow mein or stir-fry seasoning mix
1
can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
1
can (8 ounces) sliced bamboo shoots, drained
2
medium stalks celery, sliced (1 cup)
1
bag (1 pound) frozen mixed sugar snap stir-fry vegetables
1/4
cup teriyaki baste and glaze (from 12-ounce bottle)
1
pound uncooked angel hair pasta or vermicelli

To Make:

  • 1Place onion, pork, seasoning mix (dry), water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and celery in order listed in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker.
  • 2Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
  • 3Gently stir in frozen vegetables and teriyaki baste and glaze. Increase heat setting to high. Cover and cook 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • 4Meanwhile, cook and drain pasta as directed on package. Serve pork mixture over pasta.

Tips:

Adding the stir-fry vegetables at the end keeps them from overcooking.

Use any stir-fry sauce in place of the teriyaki baste and glaze to vary the flavor.

The flavor of this chop suey-style dish is a blast from the past, so why not make it a retro '50s party? Serve a molded gelatin salad complete with "exotic" canned mandarin oranges. Don't forget the fortune cookies to go with coffee in the rumpus room.

Serves: 8

Sandra Lee has one on the food network website. I added shrimp and chicken when I made it.
