If you are looking for a healthy way to replace take-out, you have to check out this Instant Pot Chicken Lo Mein! This one pot meal is made with tons of veggies, like snow peas, carrots, and mushrooms, as well as topped off with chicken in a delicious sauce! Not only is Instant Pot Chicken Lo Mein quick and easy to make, but it’s also a great way to save a few bucks!
If you love Chicken Lo Mein the way I do, you will be so glad to hear you can actually make a healthier (and less expensive) version right in your Instant Pot. I know, I didn’t really think it was possible either, but it 100% is! I recently experimented with adapting my favorite take out orders like Cashew Chicken for the Instant Pot but thought, because of the noodles in Lo Mein, it really wouldn’t convert well. After trying a few batches (and it did take me a few tries), I finally got the perfect version down!
This is a healthier version of Chicken Lo Mein made right in the Instant Pot, not the traditional greasy version you would order from your local take-out place. It’s packed with tons of fresh veggies and made with only a little sesame oil. And, like I mentioned above, it’s a great way to save a few bucks by not ordering out when you are short on time or just don’t feel like cooking.

Ordering Chinese food has seriously been my saving grace for dinner the last few months. I was pregnant, and it was the one food everyone in my house could actually agree on. Now that I have finally had my little one, I am trying to get my family back on track with eating healthier and having a home-cooked meal on the table every night. Simple meals like this are really helping me to make that happen.
One good thing about Instant Pot Chicken Lo Mein is that it’s made with simple ingredients that are available right in your local supermarket.
