This is one of my newer recipes that I tried out a couple of months ago. Everybody really liked it, but it was missing something. Recently, I added the sesame oil, and that did it. Now we eat it every week. It's so inexpensive, very easy to make, and it's much less greasy than I find in most restaurants. This has become one of my favorite dinners. I like to serve it with spring rolls.

1 package chow mein noodles
5 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 c teriyaki sauce (I like Soy Vey)
1/2 sweet onion, sliced
1 T minced garlic (I bought it in a jar at Costco. This changed my life.)
2 c cabbage or broccoli coleslaw mix (with no sauce)
1 c shredded carrots
1 T sesame oil
3 T soy sauce


    Cook the noodles according to the directions on the package. All I can ever find are the really skinny ones, and they only need to boil for about three minutes.

    In a large pan over medium high heat, cook the chicken, onion, and garlic in the teriyaki sauce. When the chicken is cooked through, add the sesame oil, cabbage or broccoli coleslaw mix and carrots, and stir fry for another minute or two. Stir in the soy sauce and noodles, and serve.
