There’s a revolution coming, y’all, and I will be gladly leading its charge. Although, I can’t imagine there will be much of a fight, because no one in their right mind would fight this one:
One. Pot. Cooking.
In my experience, one pot cooking has always consisted of soups, and stews, and chili (which I guess is some combination of a soup and a stew, if you really think about it). But this “One Pot Wonder,” as Amanda at The Wholesome Dish calls it, is on a whooooole ‘nother level.
It’s fast. It’s easy. It’s delicious. That’s the trifecta, my friends. You seriously just dump all the ingredients into a pot—uncooked chicken, dry pasta, raw veggies…
…and top it off with some liquids—broth, sesame oil, soy sauce…
…and simmer it for 15 minutes. 15 minutes. And then you eat it.
And then your mind is blown because you can’t believe you just threw together a meal that good, that quickly, and you only have one pot to clean. The future is here, folks.
One Pot Chicken Lo Mein
Adapted from: The Wholesome Dish
- 1/2 lb chicken breast, cut into small chunks
- 12 oz whole wheat linguini or fettuccini, broken in half
- 4 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 3 inch long strips
- 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 3 inch long strips
- 1 bunch green onions, white part diced and green part cut in 3 inch long strips
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. corn starch
- 1 packet Splenda
- 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tsp. sesame oil
Place chicken and pasta in large stock pot. Add carrots, red pepper, and green onions in the remaining space in the pot. Add all remaining ingredients.
Cover and bring to a boil. Stir, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes, or until most of the liquid is gone and chicken is fully cooked through.
