Prep: Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Drain and rinse the water chestnuts. Mince or grate the garlic. Peel, then mince or grate 1 tbsp ginger (double for 4 people.) Thinly slice the green onion. Finely chop the chili, removing the seeds for less heat, if using.

2

Cook the noodles and broccoli: Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook 7-8 min. Add the broccoli to the noddles and cook until noodles are al dente and broccoli is tender-crisp, 1-2 min further. Drain and rinse the noodles with cold water to prevent the noodles from sticking.

3

Cook the chicken: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the sesame oil, then the chicken, garlic, ginger and half the green onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is golden-brown all over, 4-5 min.

4

Add the coleslaw, water chestnuts, soy sauce, oyster sauce, broccoli and noodles. Stir together.

5

Finish and serve: Divide the chow mein between bowls. Sprinkle with remaining green onions and as much chili as you dare. Enjoy!
