If you are looking for your favourite Panda Express Chow Mien copycat. Look no more because this recipe is all you need! It is quick, easy, and completely adaptable. Chow Mein has been my family’s favourite take-out since Panda Express. I always wanted to make a copycat of their recipe, but I have no time. Not until I decided to take a vacation from my forever busy schedule. I am so glad I did because this turned out fantastic! The best part is I can throw in my favourite veggies or whatever I have on hand.

The first time I served this to my family, they failed to tell the difference. The only thing they noticed is the taste level up! From then, whenever we want to Chow Mein from Panda Express, I just cook it myself at home. If you enjoy recreating restaurant meals, you have to try this!
