Ingredients

  • 8 oz (225 grams) dried rice noodles
  • 1 chicken breast (or 2 boneless skinless thighs, sliced into 1/8-inch (1/3-cm) thick pieces)

Sauce (divided)

  • 1/4 cup Lee Kum Kee Premium Oyster Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine (or dry sherry)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce (or soy sauce)
  • 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce (or soy sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Stir fry

  • 3 to 4 tablespoons peanut oil (or vegetable oil) (*Footnote 1)
  • 4 green onions , chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic , minced
  • 2 teaspoons ginger , minced
  • 1 handful bean sprouts (about 2 cups loosely packed)
  • 1/2 bell pepper

Instructions

  • Soak the rice noodles according to the instructions until cooked through, but still a bit chewy inside. Once done soaking, rinse rice noodles with cold water and drain.
  • Prepare the remaining ingredients while soaking the rice noodles. Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the mixed sauce into the bowl with the sliced chicken. Stir to mix well. Let marinate for 5 minutes while chopping the other ingredients.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Spread the chicken in the skillet in a single layer. Cook until the bottom side turns golden brown, about 1 minute. Flip and cook the other side until browned, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer the chicken to a plate immediately.
  • In the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon of oil and turn to medium heat. Add the green onion, garlic, and ginger. Stir constantly until you can smell a strong fragrance, 15 seconds.
  • Toss the cooked noodles again and add them into the skillet. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil onto the noodles. Use a pair of tongs to toss the noodles with oil. If the noodles start to get sticky, swirl in 2 tablespoons of water.
  • Add the bean sprouts and bell pepper into the skillet. Pour in the mixed sauce. Immediately use a pair of tongs to toss and mix everything, until the sauce is absorbed by the noodles. Add the cooked chicken and give it a final toss. Turn off heat and transfer everything to serving plates immediately.
  • Serve hot as a main.

Notes

  1. You will need to use more oil if you’re using a carbon steel or a cast iron pan. The noodles and the sauce are very starchy and might end up sticking to the pan.
