SalScilla Farms Mushroom & Chicken LoMein

From Conway, AR

<p>A Farm-style on this classic Chinese dish. It can be made with any protein or just use different varieties of mushrooms and it will be just as good. When i make it vegetarian I use poHu, grey oyster, shitake and king oyster mushrooms. 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts</p>
