Ingredients
  • 1   tablespoon 
    cornstarch
  • 2   tablespoons 
    reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1   pound 
    boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1   pound 
    fresh or dry lo mein noodles
  • 1/4  cup 
    canola oil, divided
  • 1   tablespoon 
    finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1   bunch 
    scallions, white and green parts separated, sliced 1/8-inch thick
  • 4   
    cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3   cups 
    packed spinach
  •  
    Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions
1.
Mix cornstarch and soy sauce in a bowl. Add chicken; marinate for 5 minutes.
2.
Boil the noodles in a large pot of salted water until al dente, about 5 minutes for fresh, 10 to 15 minutes for dried. Drain and transfer to a bowl filled with ice water. (It helps prevent the noodles from getting soft and sticky.) When theyre cold, drain and toss them with 1 Tbs. canola oil.
3.
Meanwhile, heat 2-1/2 Tbsp. oil on high in a large pan. Stir-fry chicken until almost cooked through, about 6 minutes; remove. Add 1/2 Tbsp. more oil to pan; stir-fry ginger, scallion whites, and garlic until oil is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the noodles, chicken, and spinach and stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with scallion greens if your child likes them.
