  1. Boil noodles:Boil the noodles until they are al dente, 1 or 2 minutes shy of the package instructions. Rinse under cold water and drizzle on a tiny amount of oil to prevent them from sticking.

Note: The yellow egg noodles I used in the photo came pre-cooked. Simply rinse them under hot water to separate the strands.

16 oz fresh Chinese egg noodles

  1. Stir fry chicken and vegetables:Heat a wok or pan over medium-high heat and add the oil. Cook the chicken until fully cooked and then remove it from the pan and set it aside. Next, add the vegetables and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender but crisp.

2 ½ cups stir fry vegetables,1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  1. Add noodles and sauce:Add the noodles and sauce to the pan and toss to combine for 1 to 2 minutes. The sauce should become shiny, glossy, and thick. Add the chicken back in and combine together. Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy!
