good! I would not add cornstarch if your noodles turn out sticky, like mine did 😉

It was decent, not superb. It was really quick to make, but lacking a bit in flavor.

It was good, not like the one I usually get from the mom and pop shop but it was chow mein

simple recipe. A little bland so added chilli, ginger and garlic and doubled the sauce quantity. Easy weeknight dinner.

I had never had chow mein before and it just wasn't my taste.

Meh, it was okay. Followed the recipe and it was just lack luster for us. Needs something more but I can't put my finger on what it may be. Unfortunately I won't be making this again.

Way too many veggies for me. But to be fair, I am new to this, so take it with a grain of salt.

Super easy and very good. although I did tweak. I added ground chicken, fresh coriander stocks, fresh ginger and garlic, red chilies, and sesame oil. Definitely a keeper recipe.

Very good. Satisfies the chinese food craving I was having. I added carrots and bok choy instead of bean sprouts. I used yakisoba noodles and they were good but didn't seem to soak up the sauce. I didn't have the sweet soy sauce to I used regular and added brown sugar. I would like to try it with the sweet soy sauce.

Very simple, easy-to-follow recipe. The noodles tasted great. Didn’t find sweet soy sauce, but checked online to make my own sweet soy sauce and the recipe ended up perfect. Also added some extra veggies to add to the taste.

Great recipe. Substituted hokkien noodles for chow mein.

Good recipe, but I had a hard time not overcooking the noodles through the different steps. I would cook the noodles a bit less than the package directions.

Very yummy with chicken! Added a little bit of lime juice to make it just right. Even the picky eater likes it!
