Ginger Scallion Hokkien Noodles

8 oz. boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Vegetable oil Coupons
1 teaspoon soy sauce, plus 1½ tablespoons (divided)
6 slices ginger
8 scallions, julienned
1 red chili, sliced (optional)
1 pound (cooked) hokkien noodles or fresh lo mein noodles
2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine (can substitute another other rice wine or dry sherry)
2 teaspoons dark soy sauce (mostly for color)

Combine the chicken with 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon soy sauce.

Heat a wok over high heat until smoking. Add 2 tablespoons of oil, and stir-fry the chicken until it turns opaque. Remove from the wok and set aside.

Add 2 more tablespoons of oil to the wok, and add the ginger slices. Fry for 1 minute, and add the scallions and red chili.
Add the noodles, and stir-fry, adding a sprinkling of hot water if the noodles are cold and you’re having difficulty breaking them up.
When the noodles have loosened and warmed up, add the Shaoxing wine, 1½ tablespoons light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and cooked chicken. Stir-fry until combined––about 1-2 minutes. Serve!
