  • 1 Red chili

For the Vegetables & Noodles (You can substitute vegetables for your taste or what’s available as same amount as recipe calls.)

  • 10 oz. Precooked & ready to use Chinese egg noodles (If you are using dry one, prepared by soak them in hot water until soften and then drain.)
  • 2 oz. Shiitake or button mushrooms (approximately 2 large or 4 small size mushrooms)

  • 4 oz. Baby bok choy (approximately 3 to 5 of baby bok choy)
  • 3 Green onions
  • 4 oz. Bean sporouts

For Garnish

  • 1 tsp. Toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. Toasted sesame seeds

For Stri Fry

  • 3 Tbs. Cooking oil


  1. Slice chicken breast into bite sizes. In a mixing bowl, add chicken and rest of ingredients for marinade and mix well until chicken is evenly coated. Set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk. Set aside.
  3. Chop garlic and ginger finely. Seeded and julienne red chili. Set aside.
  4. Slice mushroom and bamboo shoot into 1/4 inch thin. Wash baby bok choy well (it contains dust in the middle) and cut them into halves or quarter as needed.
  5. Cut top end and root of green onions. Cut in halves lengthwise and then cut into 2 inches long pieces. Set aside with bean sprouts.
  6. Heat a wok over hight heat; add 1 Tbs. oil and add chicken. Spread chicken pieces so they will brown up evenly. Stir fry chicken until their edges are nicely golden brown and about 3/4 way cooked, about 2 to 3 minutes. (Be careful not to over cook them, I recommend you to cook less than 3 minutes.) Turn off heat and remove chicken from wok and place on a plate.
  7. Heat now-empty-wok over high heat; add 2 Tbs. oil and add aromatic vegetables (garlic, ginger and chili) and stir fry them until you can smell all the beautiful aromas, about 30 to 45 second.
  8. Add mushrooms, bamboo shot and baby bok choy; stir fry until vegetables are soften, about 1 minute.
  9. Add noodles and sauce. Stir fry until noodles are fully cooked and you can’t see any sauce running in wok, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  10. Add chicken back into wok along with green onions and bean sprouts. Stir fry 30 second to 1 minute, or until last 3 ingredients are warmed up.
  11. Transfer to a serving plate, Drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
