Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water until just tender to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and mix with sesame oil. In a small bowl, combine hoisin and soy sauce.
  2. Pour 1 tablespoons canola oil into a 12-in. nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add ginger, garlic, green onions, carrots, celery, and red onion, and stir often just until softened, 2 to 4 minutes. Add chicken and bean sprouts and stir just until warm. Turn out into a bowl and keep warm.
  3. Wipe frying pan clean. Pour remaining 1 tablespoons oil into pan over medium heat. Add noodles; stir and turn occasionally until light brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Pour hoisin mixture and chicken mixture over noodles, add cilantro, and mix gently.
  5. *To substitute fresh angel hair pasta for Chinese egg noodles, use 9 oz. and cook 45 seconds.
