{One Pot Wonder} Chicken Lo Mein

It’s Sunday again. Sundays I find myself wondering why my family wants dinner every single night. I mean I fed them last night. I’m kidding, kinda. Sundays I want to relax. All. Day. Long. I want to read my book. I want to curl up on the couch with my boys and watch movies or our favorite shows. I want to play with them on the playground. I want to laugh, a lot, and make blanket forts. I want to take an afternoon ┬ánap. I want to do so many things. What I absolutely do not want to do on a Sunday, is cook dinner.

Still, the family has to eat. As a solution, I try to find quick, easy recipes that don’t require a lot of work on my part. ‘One pot wonder’ meals are a favorite of mine on Sundays. Little work, and even less clean-up required afterwards. This Lo Mein couldn’t have been any easier to make, or any more flavorful. It’s everything I want in a dinner, especially on a night I don’t want to cook.
