Cantonese chow mein is well known for its contrasting textures – crispy fried strands tangled with soft noodles, tender-crisp veggies, all smothered in an umami-rich sauce. While the wok is still the traditional (and arguably the best) cooking vessel for chow mein, a humble sheet pan is also a handy way to rustle it up with minimal effort. Simply throw everything on a sheet pan and let the oven do the work for you. It’s also a great way to use up leftover vegetables or seasonal produce. Dried (or fresh) thin egg noodles are generally best for chow mein, as they crisp up nicely, but if you’re less concerned about crispiness, use whatever noodles you have on hand.
