Chicken Lo Mein

I received a BIG box of farm-fresh vegetables…so big that we had an abundance of veggie meals day after day. Some of them made it into this tasty dish. Chunks of marinated chicken breasts, freshly diced zucchini, green beans, carrots, onion, red & yellow peppers and asparagus stir-fried and served over lo mein noodles with a deliciously thick broth…Be prepared to serve the family a second helping!
