For the Chicken:

  • 300 g chicken breast cut into small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

For the Creamy White Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

For the Lo Mein:

  • 400 g lo mein noodles or any preferred Chinese noodles
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • 1 cup mixed vegetables such as bell peppers, carrots, peas, optional

Marinate the Chicken:

Prepare the Lo Mein Noodles:

  • Cook the noodles according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and toss with a bit of vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Set aside.

Make the Creamy White Sauce:

  • In the same pan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Stir in the flour and cook for about 1 minute to form a roux.
  • Gradually add the milk, whisking continuously to prevent lumps.
  • Add garlic powder, if using, and season with salt and white pepper. Cook until the sauce thickens.

Combine Chicken and Sauce:

  • Add the cooked chicken (and mixed vegetables, if using) to the sauce. Stir well to combine.

Assemble and Serve:

  • Place the cooked lo mein noodles in serving bowls.
  • Top with the creamy chicken sauce mixture.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley or green onions.
