    chicken chowmein

    Hi does anyone have a simple receipe for chicken chowmein..
    its the amounts im getting all muddled up with. I will only use chicken, fresh egg noodles suggestions if any better, bean sprouts, and other veg. Can i use a made up sauce or is soy sauce better and how many points only been on ww for week and not got the hang of it yet. Been searching recipes always got somthing in we dont like so dont know how many points. Thank you very much.
