Alyssa Collazo: Chicken Chow Mein with Blue Dragon + Giveaway♥

Chicken Chow Mein with Blue Dragon + Giveaway♥

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Blue Dragon. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

I'm big on takeout, especially Chinese food. It's a family favorite. After a long day of running around, sometimes it's just easier ordering takeout vs figuring out a quick meal my family will enjoy. The only downfall in ordering out is waiting. Have you ever ordered takeout and the wait is well over an hour? On top of waiting you have a hungry toddler and cranky seven year old? Take it from me, it's not pretty! That's when Blue Dragon comes in. Blue Dragon inspires families to prepare new and flavorful meals at home. In less time than it takes for delivery to arrive, you can instead create delicious, authentic-tasting Asian meals at home!

I received a box FULL of Blue Dragon products plus a Wok Set, Takeout Containers, Chopsticks, and a Wok Spatula. Honestly, I was both surprised and overwhelmed by how much variety there was and deciding what I would make. Everything looked so GOOD. I went with something I've been dying to try Chow Mein. I was a little nervous making Chow Mein because well I've never ever used a Wok. Thankfully I was nervous for absolutely no reason because it was so fun to use a Wok and making Chow Mein.

This recipe took about 25 minutes to make including prep time. And the best part, I didn't have to get my kids dressed just to pick up takeout. I was able to spend more time with them and make a delicious and EASY authentic meal they loved. The Takeout Containers and Chopsticks were the perfect touch to make our meal feel like Homemade Takeout. We are looking forward to trying the rest of the products Blue Dragon sent us. Blue Dragon Sauces are available in several different flavors including Broccoli Beef, Phad Thai, Szechuan Pepper, Chow Mein and General Tao. I can't wait to try General Tao and Spring Rolls.

Here is the recipe for Blue Dragons Chicken Chow Mein.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 chicken breasts, diced
1 red pepper, sliced into strips
2/3 cup of mushrooms, quartered or sliced
1 crown broccoli
1 package of Blue Dragon Chow Mein Cooking Sauce
4 portions egg noodles, cooked to pack instructions

Prep Time:
5 minutes

Cook Time:
20 minutes

Portions:
4 Servings

Instructions:
Heat the vegetable oil in a large wok and stir fry the peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli over a high heat for 1-2 minutes.
Add the chicken. Cook until the meat is sealed and browned.
Add the sauce and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir through the cooked Egg Noodles and serve immediately.
