In this recipe, quick-cooking fresh wonton noodles elevate lo mein: a Chinese-American dish of noodles, meat and vegetables. They're perfect for taking on our sweet and savory sauce, accented by the nuttiness of sesame oil. For vibrant flavor and texture, we're tossing the noodles with a medley of vegetables, including carrots, bok choy and enoki mushrooms—a unique variety with long, thin stems and tiny caps.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Cut off and discard the root ends of the mushrooms. Using your hands, gently pull to separate the mushrooms. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Thinly slice the celery crosswise. Peel the carrots and thinly slice into rounds. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottom and green top. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy. Roughly chop the stems, keeping the leaves whole. Cut the garlic chives into ½-inch pieces. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; thinly slice crosswise. Place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the noodles:
5 Cook the noodles:

While the bok choy cooks, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Reserving ½ cup of the noodle cooking water, drain thoroughly. Transfer the cooked noodles to the pan of cooked vegetables.

6 Finish & serve your dish:

Add the cooked chicken and browned mushrooms, garlic chives, soy glaze and half the reserved noodle cooking water to the pan. Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining noodle cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Turn off the heat. Add the sesame oil and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the finished noodles among 4 dishes. Garnish with the green top of the scallion. Enjoy!
