  • 1 wok/skillet/pan


  • 1 chicken breast 6-7 oz
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

For sauce:

  • 3 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

For Stir Fry:

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 4 green onions green part
  • 1 pepper
  • bean sprouts
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 14 oz Chinese egg noodles
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  • Cut chicken meat into thin slices and transfer it to a mixing bowl. Add then cornstarch, salt, and sesame oil. Stir to combine and set aside for a while.
  • Chop the vegetables. Cook the noodle according to package instructions, drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, combine the ingredients for the sauce: dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, and black pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat skillet with one tablespoon of cooking oil until very hot. Stir in the chicken and cook until lightly brown. Transfer to a plate. Add one more tablespoon of oil to the same pan. When the oil is shimmery, add the pepper, green onions, and spices (garlic powder, chili flakes) and saute for 3-4 seconds. Toss the noodles with some kitchen tongs and add them to the pan. Pour the sauce and add fried chicken slices. Mix well so all the noodles are coated with the sauce.
