Fusia Asian Inspirations Chicken Lo Mein

Chinese-American food has a regular spot in meal rotations in my house. Sometimes we get it from a takeout restaurant nearby, but often we make our own using meals and kits purchased at Aldi. While grocery store takeout isn’t the same as getting it from a restaurant, it’s not bad and it helps us keep a balanced budget.

For a main course, my family likes Aldi’s General Tso’s chicken and mandarin orange chicken, and we usually pick up sides such as egg rolls, fried rice, or noodles. Aldi sells some lo mein noodles with chicken and veggies in the freezer section that work well as a side or can make a complete meal.

Fusia Asian Inspirations Chicken Lo Mein


Fusia Asian Inspirations Chicken Lo Mein costs $4.59 for a 20-ounce bag. The package describes it as “savory chicken lo mein featuring lo mein noodles, chicken, and vegetables in a delicious teriyaki lo mein sauce.”

This is a Regular Buy, which means you can find it at Aldi all year.

It’s got a fairly long ingredients list, with the primary ingredients being cooked noodles, lo mein sauce, fully cooked grilled chicken breast strips with rib meat, and vegetables (broccoli, red bell peppers, carrots, and onions).

If you’re avoiding allergens, this contains wheat and soy.

One bag has three 1-cup servings (189 grams), and one serving has 200 calories, 2 grams of total fat (3% DV), 0.5 grams of saturated fat (3% DV), 20 mg of cholesterol (7% DV), 840 mg of sodium (35% DV), 33 grams of total carbohydrates (12% DV), 3 grams of dietary fiber (12% DV), 10 grams of total sugars, 3 grams of added sugars (6% DV), and 11 grams of protein.

It can be prepared in a skillet (the preferred method) or in the microwave. 

To heat in the skillet, heat one tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add chicken, vegetables, and noodles. Cover and cook for 6-7 minutes. Stir occasionally. Once heated through, add contents of the sauce packet and stir until combined and hot, about 30 seconds.

To heat in the microwave, pour contents of the package into a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high power for 7 minutes. Uncover and stir to blend ingredients. Cover and microwave on high power for an additional 3-4 minutes. For best taste, serve immediately.

I always make this in a skillet. It often takes a few minutes longer than the instructions state to thoroughly heat the noodles, veggies, and chicken. I’d recommend allotting about 10-12 minutes rather than 6-7.

I wonder if Aldi has reformulated this lo mein dish because when I recently made it, I was surprised at how good it tasted. The noodles have a texture similar to Ramen, and there are a lot of noodles, which I appreciate after trying other dishes like this that have hardly any noodles or rice and are mostly a bunch of broccoli stems and carrots. This has plenty of noodles.

The sauce soaks into the noodles, so while the noodles remind me of Ramen, that’s where the similarity ends. There is plenty of flavor in this meal, though.

Some of the veggie chunks were a little large, including some broccoli pieces and one giant piece of red bell pepper, so I cut those into smaller pieces in the skillet before serving. This would benefit from having more broccoli florets and fewer stems, but that’s a common complaint with dishes like this.

Some of my family thought this was just okay, but I liked it so much I’ll definitely buy it again.

The Verdict:

Fusia Asian Inspirations Chicken Lo Mein features a mix of noodles, chicken strips, and veggies in teriyaki sauce. It tastes great and has a generous amount of noodles. It works well as a side dish served alongside other Chinese-American favorites, and it also has everything you need to make a complete meal on its own.

  1. Intresting,
    I tried it before and it was not very good. I gotta try it again now.

  2. Yum! I just made this, kind of by accident. I was repairing my ice maker and forgot to put this back in the freezer so it had partially thawed. I put it the fridge until evening. The instructions say to cook on high 6-7 minutes. Since mine was somewhat thawed already after about 5 minutes I was starting to get some char. I added the sauce plus a bit of liquid to deglaze the pan. This stuff was incredible! If cooked from frozen, I doubt that slight char would have developed. If you cook this to just where the carrots are caramelizing and then add the sauce with a bit of water or white wine, you will be amazed. A new favorite!

  3. The quality of the ingredients is excellent, but the sauce packet was, in no way, enough for the generous portion in the bag. Noodles are not the caramel color of the picture on the bag; they remained white. I used the microwave instructions.
