Below I’m going to share with you a new recipe I created for gluten-free chicken lo mein noodles. But before I do… a little story.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about finally buying a 10-piece set of All-Clad Stainless Steel pots. I’m totally giddy about it – cooking with these healthy pots and pans brings a smile to my face, and I have happily said goodbye to Teflon-coated pans forever!
The night I brought home the pots, I decided to make a gluten-free chicken lo mein. This was a total experiment that I’m happy to report turned out to be so delicious – my husband is already asking me to make this again!

Not only did I get to use two pots and pans from my new All-Clad Stainless Steel set to make this gluten-free chicken lo mein noodles recipe, but also I got to use my favorite gluten-free noodles, Rice Ramen from Lotus Foods. These are the best gluten-free ramen substitute noodles I have found. Love them!
So if you want to cook up some gluten-free chicken lo mein noodles for your family, give this quick and easy recipe a try!
You can use frozen peas and carrots to ease preparation. Don’t you just love when recipes are so easy to make and include ingredients you already have at home?
The gluten-free chicken lo mein noodles recipe tasted great the next day for lunch too. I’m so excited to add this new recipe to my weekday cooking rotation officially – and I know you will be too.
Gluten Free Chicken Lo Mein
- 3 squares Rice Ramen by Lotus Foods
- 1 lb boneless skinless organic chicken breasts, diced into small bite-sized pieces

- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup tamari sauce
- 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- Cornstarch slurry (1 tablespoon cornstarch + 2 tablespoon water)
