Mongolian Chicken Recipe

As you open the box, you see a sandwich, an apple, maybe a bag of chips, and – yes! – a delicious little treat. You may see a different treat than me in that box,...

This shrimp lo mein dish is absolutely one of them. It’s a great recipe to make anytime, because it cooks up in only 15 minutes or so—in ONE PAN!
