Notes

  1. Low cooking time & High heat. Asian stir-fry Noodles are traditionally cooked on high heat and stirred constantly. The high heat and a few minutes are enough to cook all the ingredients properly. Chicken and veggies are expected to be a bit crispy on the outside and juicy outside.
  2. Instant Noodles type - I bought an Instant Ramen Noodles pack from the nearby grocery store. Any noodles made with egg (preferably) or not will do as long as it is non-sticky types.
  3. Sauce. Suggest making the Asian stir-fry sauce first and keep it ready. It is easy to make as you have to mix the sauces (Soy, Oyster), vinegar and Oil first. Then add sugar and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Keep the sauce ready and aside.
  4. Prepare Noodles - Boil the noodles next. This is again easy to do. Just follow the instructions in the label of the instant ramen noodles. Mine was good to go in a minute.
  5. Noodles until soft - I do not cook the noodles completely and take them out once they turn soft and not fully done. Noodles will also be cooked for a couple of minutes along with the chicken and veggies. We do not want them to be overdone and chewy.
  6. Minced garlic should be the first ingredient cooked in the pan. Garlic cooks very fast as it does not release a lot of water. There is a chance of burning garlic so a minute should be fine.
  7. Onions - After a minute of cooking garlic, add onions. Onions release water and they do not get burnt quickly. Cook unit they become soft and little golden.
  8. Crispy Veggies - Vegetables added to the noodles should be crispy. We do not want the veggies overly cooked and soft. 2 ~ 3 minutes should do the trick.
  9. Any Protein - I have used chicken breast which cooked for 3 minutes on high heat turns out juicy and tender. Chicken breasts can be used but care should be taken to cook them for less time. You can also use Shrimp or pork as substitutes.
