Chicken Lo Mein Stir Fry

Growing up in the Philippines and living in Taiwan for several years, I learned to love cooking and eating Lo Mein. This is really a fast and easy stir fry recipe. When my in-laws were here, i wasn't sure if they would like to try this dish since i haven't seen them eating it before. The response was really good - it was a relief for me.
  • 1 lb. Lo Mein Noodles ( can be replace by spaghetti noodles )
  • 1 lb. chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, julienne cut
  • 1 cup pea pods, whole or sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon Light soy sauce
  • ¼ cup chicken broth ( or 1 bouillon chicken cubes )
