My daughter, a very picky eater, loves the chicken lo mein served at a local restaurant, and I tried this recipe in an effort to duplicate her favorite dish. I could not find sake, but found mirin (which is sweetened sake) so used 2 tablespoons of mirin and omitted the sugar called for in the recipe. My daughter loved it! I have prepared the dish several more times and now consider it a family favorite. Sometimes I add julienned red pepper and snow peas; I use regular soy sauce rather than low-sodium.

I used raw chicken and stir-fried it as well. I also used a pre-bagged stir fry veggie mix and took the suggestion of using mirin. It was a good lo mein.

I found this recipe to be too gingery, and we really like ginger! Even aside from the ginger, it was nothing special. It lacked something, maybe garlic?
