Natalie's 10 minute Chow Mein

I attempted Chow Mein without a recipe.

I sliced carrots, celery and scallions. Stir-fried them in veg oil until they started to brown. (But still crunchy)

I had my super hot husband shred the chicken for me. I added the chicken to the veggie mixture and added a TBS of hoisin sauce, and several drops of sesame oil. Stirred until heated through.

Made $1 worth of Chinese noddles.

Finally I mixed everything together and added soy sauce to taste. hǎochī!
