Panda Express Chow Mein Recipe
I was able to try Panda Express for the first time last summer. Although, I felt it wasn’t great Chinese food, it was good. One thing that I tried was the Chow Mein. The Chow Mein had a good flavor to it and went well as a side dish. This recipe is for Panda Express Chow Mein. This Chow Mein consists of noodles mixed with sauce, onions, cabbage, and celery. What I really like about this recipe is that there is a good chance you may have several of the ingredients on hand. Even if you don’t, this recipe is very inexpensive and should not cost a lot to prepare. There is a variety of different noodles you can use for this recipe—chow Mein noodles, thin spaghetti, or even ramen noodles. This recipe makes a great side dish to go with any Chinese meal. Enjoy.
