Kid Approved Chicken & Broccoli Lo Mein

img_58311

Anytime that I can make a meal that my children love to eat, I immediately save it to my recipe book. I originally saw this recipe on Facebook and decided we were going to try it out. However, as with many recipes they almost never feed big families. So, I adjusted the recipe to fit the needs of my rather unique family. The recipe originally called for beef steak but I decided to substitute the beef steak with chicken. I really liked creating this meal and will probably do it again in the near future and allow the children to help. I also, thought that it would be a cool idea to adjust the veggies from broccoli to perhaps cabbage the next time and change the type of meat from time to time. One thing I recommend, is making adjustments to the red pepper flakes and pepper, as the kids dramatically informed me they needed water immediately after. Let me know if you tried it and how it turned out!

Serving Size: 8-10
