To marinate and prep the chicken

  • 2 cups water
  • 11/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ pound of boneless skinless chicken, cubed

For the Lo Mein Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste

  • 7 to 8 shitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup Chinese cooking wine
  • ½ teaspoon sriracha or other chili paste
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup stock

  1. Soak the chicken in the water and baking soda for about 20 minutes, wash the chicken thoroughly and drain and dry.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  3. Toss the chicken in 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and add the chicken to the oil and cook stirring the chicken until it is well browned and cooked through.
