Ground chicken or turkey mixed with a wide variety of vegetables and lo mein noodles in a flavorful sauce made from soy sauce, honey, sriracha, and hoisin sauce.Print Recipe Pin Recipe
- 2 lbs (908 g) ground turkey or chicken
- ¼ lb (113 g) carrots
- ½ medium (100 g) onion
- 1 medium (150 g) red pepper
- ½ lb (227 g) mushrooms
- 2 cups (120 g) coleslaw mix
- 1½ cups (45 g) spinach
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
- 7 oz (200 g) lo mein noodles or pad thai rice noodles for gluten free
For the Sauce
- 1½ tbsp (30 g) honey
- 2⅓ tbsp (35 g) soy sauce
- 1 tbsp (15 g) sriracha
- ¾ tbsp (18 g) hoisin sauce
- 1 tsp (4 g) ground ginger
- 1½ tbsp (23 g) water
For the Noodles
- Prepare the noodles according to the instructions on the package.
For the Turkey
- Add some oil to a skillet over medium high heat. Add in the turkey and cook it until it has browned. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
For the Vegetables
- Wash and prepare all of your vegetables. Cut your red pepper, onion, and mushrooms into thin slices so they cook quickly. Use a vegetable peeler to create ribbons out of your carrots. You'll want to do all of this prep work before you start cooking them, the cooking process goes fast.
- In a large pot, add some oil and add the onion. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until they have begun to develop color.
- Add in the coleslaw mix. Stir and cook for a minute or two.
- Make room in the pot and add the red pepper to the pot. Allow them to develop a bit of color then add in the shredded carrots and stir. Continue to cook until the vegetables have softened.
- Stir in the spinach and allow it to wilt.
- For the mushrooms I prefer to cook them separately so they can develop color. If you are feeling lazy you can throw them in at any point of the cooking process. I like to add them to a dry skillet over medium heat, salt them, and cook them until they have browned. Add them to the pot with the other vegetables.
For the Lo Mein
- Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a bowl.
- Drain the water from the noodles and add them to a skillet with the sauce. You just want to toss the noodles with the sauce so they are evenly coated.
- Add the noodles and turkey to the large pot with the vegetables. Stir to incorporate and season with salt and pepper as needed.

Thanks Kelli 🤠
Came out great! Will definitely use this again.
So good! We liked the tiny bit of heat you get after every bite.
Another amazing recipe. I cook for my father in law,too and offered him part of my meal prep for the week since I was too tired to cook…and he loved it. Asked me to make more. It also freezes decently well.
Loved this! First recipe I tried from here to lose my extra pandemic weight. It’s crunchy and a bit spicy. Excited to try more recipes!
glad you enjoyed 😎
Love this!! I added a yellow pepper, zucchini, used the whole onion plus the entire bag of coleslaw/spinach, and added a side of broccoli. Doubled the sauce as well. Made mine into 10 meals at 350 cals a piece and they still feel huge!! Can barely finish a serving. No clue how it’s written for 5, would never be able to eat that much in one sitting even without the extras I added
Sounds awesome, glad you enjoyed it 😎
i’m thinking to sub honey for 0 calorie syrup. maybe get rid of the olive oil all togther. not sure if it’s worth subbing the hoison sauce (perhaps for more soy and syrup?). Trying to get those poverty calories wihouth subbing the noodles.
It’s worth a shot. You can get creative with how you cook the meat and vegetables to lessen the oil. I wouldn’t recommend changing up the sauce much though.
I discovered your YT channel 3 days ago, I watched several of them and I really want to thank you!
I’m a dad, I like to prepare nice, tasty stuff for my family but I also need it to be easy and quick! Your channel is absolutely great for that.
The only “adaptation” I do is the following: you meal prep for several days… I just prep for one meal for my family lol.
Thanks a lot Josh!
PS: Thanks also for the metric measures, I am French, I never could understand your cups lol.
I do all my recipes in metric weights. I hate volumetric too 😎
How can I replace the hoisin sauce 🙁 ?
maybe oyster sauce?
Very easy to make and big on flavor. I used ground turkey for the protein. Everyone in my family loved it. Even my grandson.
Glad to hear that 😎
Very good and wife loved it. Added fresh minced garlic to the onion, and doubled the sauce adding szechuan peppercorns.
