One of my favorite things about this Copycat Panda Express Chow Mein is the versatility. The recipe (linked in my bio —> litecravings) is really just a base, so you can add and substitute given what you have on hand.

This time, I used shredded carrots instead of celery and added a pound of 99% FF ground turkey that I needed to use up. Seasoned the turkey with salt, pepper, garlic, and ginger, then followed the rest of the recipe as written with my carrot-for-celery swap. I also used linguini instead of spaghetti. I love a meal that helps me clear out my fridge and pantry!

The original recipe is 4 SP for a heaping full cup on Blue and Green, or 1 SP on Purple if you use whole wheat spaghetti. The turkey only adds points if you’re one Green, for about 1 extra SP per serving. Such a delicious and filling meal for 5 SP!

You can also find the recipe by googling “lite cravings chow mein.” Btw, I’m fully aware that this is technically low mein since I’m not using fried noodles, but I like to call it chow mein cause it sounds yummier to me. Okay? Okay. 😜

  2. Looks yummy! Thanks for explaini the difference between Lo mein and chow mein. I’ve always wondered!

  3. Love recipes like this that are so easy to adapt to what you have on hand. Especially helpful now that we do not run to the store between shops as our stores are still limiting the number of people allowed in.
