Notes

  • Fresh egg noodles can be added straight to pan/wok. If you use dry egg noodles, boil the noodles by the packet instructions. Make sure not to cook the noodles very soft, over boiled noodles in stir fry can make the dish mushy and starchy texture. To prevent the noodles from overcooked, after boiling in hot water, rinse with cold running water and drain the water out. Drizzle a bit of sesame/vegetable oil over the noodles, mix well , so the noodles do not stick to one another. 
  • Marinating the chicken slices with baking soda and corn starch(flour) is called velveting. That is the secret technique of the Chinese restaurants's succulent stir fry meat. This method is widely used in Oriental/Chinese cooking and it locks the meat moisture and keeps the meat juicy and tender when you stir fry it on high heat. 
  • I used large non-stick wok for most of my stir fry noodles. You can use any large wok, pan or skillets. Make sure to prepare all the ingredients and sauce before stir fry and cook the dish with high heat to medium-high heat about 350° to 400° F. 
  • If you like your broccoli soft, you can blanch in boiling water for 1-2 mins before you add in your stir fry. If you like crisp vegetables you can add straight to wok and cook until the texture you prefer.
