These stirred noodles are much easier to make than fried noodles, as they essentially stew and absorb the rich sauce.


  • 400g Lilydale skinless chicken thighs, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3-4 thick slices of ginger, bruised
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 small carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 small red capsicum, cut into strips
  • 4 thin spring onions, cut into 5cm lengths
  • 10 snowpeas, trimmed and halved on an angle
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • a pinch of caster sugar
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 500g thick fresh Hokkien noodles


  1. Combine the chicken with 1 tablespoon of the dark soy sauce.
  2. Heat a wok until it is very hot and add in the oil around the edges so it runs into the bottom. Add in the ginger first and then after a few seconds, the garlic. Toss in the oil until the garlic starts to brown, then add in the chicken. Stir-fry the chicken until it starts to brown.
  3. Add the carrot, capsicum, snow peas and spring onion and toss to coat, then add the remaining 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce plus the oyster sauce, sugar, sesame oil and chicken stock. Bring to the boil. Taste the sauce – it should be strong and flavourful.
  4. Poke a few holes in the bag of noodles and massage gently to loosen them. Add in the noodles and stir to combine. Continue to cook for about 2-3 minutes until the noodles are softened but still al dente, then serve.
