Chicken and Veggie Lo Mein Chicken and Veggie Lo Mein

1/2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1/2 tbsp garlic, minced
1/2 tbsp ginger, minced
1/2 lb chicken breasts or thighs
1/4 cup water chestnuts, sliced
1 cup broccoli, cut into florets
1/4 cup shiitake mushrooms, cut in half
1/8 cup almonds, chopped
1/8 cup celery, diced
1/8 cup green onions, chopped
1 cup green cabbage, shredded
1/8 cup coconut aminos
1/2 tsp sesame seeds

Heat wok or skillet over high heat. Add sesame oil, minced ginger and garlic, and sauté for 1 minute to allow the flavors to infuse the oil. Add chicken to the wok, and cook, stirring frequently for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken is mostly cooked. Add in broccoli, water chestnuts, celery, and shiitake mushrooms; sauté for 2 minutes. Add in almonds, cabbage, and green onion. Pour in coconut aminos. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, until cabbage softens a little. Remove from heat, and garnish with sesame seeds.
