Lo Mein (Take-Out Copycat)

Lo mein should not be a lengthy process (if Chinese Restaurants can have it ready in a fastly manner then the process should be fairly quick.) This Lo mein recipe doesn't require a dozen of different condiments and the process from start to finish is probably less than 20 minutes! Make it Chicken Lo mein but vegetables that you may already have on hand can be all that you really need.
