    Diet Types:
  • CKD non-dialysis
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces lo mein noodles
  • 1 pound  boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 1-1/2 cups carrots, diagonally sliced
  • 1 cup celery, diagonally sliced
  • 1 cup onion, sliced
  • 1 cup raw mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

Preparation

  1. Cook lo mein noodles according to package omitting salt. Drain and set aside.
  2. Thinly slice chicken breasts. 
  3. Heat olive oil in a wok or big, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes or until no longer pink.
  4. Add onions, carrots and celery. Stir-fry gently until vegetables are cooked but  still crunchy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add mushrooms and noodles, and stir constantly until hot.
  6. Add soy sauce, stir and serve.

Helpful hints

  • Linguine or fettuccine can be used instead of lo mein noodles. The nutrient composition is very similar.
  • Replace chicken with thin slices of beef for variety.
  • Use leftover grilled chicken or beef from a cookout the day before. In step #3, reduce cooking time to 1 to 2 minutes.
