Chicken Chow Mein

I love Chicken Chow Mein and have found that each restaurant has it's own take on the recipe. Therefore, I have tried to compile my own favorite. This was originally from the Food Network Kitchens but it is now from Diane's Kitchen.;) Don't let the long laundry list frighten you, you have to get it all ready before hand and then it's a breeze! Most of the ingredients are seasonings and items you find in your pantry. Update: 05/04/2009 - sorry but I made this over the weekend again and I tweaked it even more - I used 3 scallions instead of 1, crushed red pepper flakes - it needed a bit of a zing - used 6 ounces of button mushrooms instead of 4. Of course we have to be careful with the dark soy sauce, I use low-sodium Tamari (the flavor is much smoother) also, it is not as salty as the other - at least I think so!!
