  • 3 tbsps oil
  • 4 oz chicken breast meat
  • 1lb thick Shanghai noodles
  • 4 oz Chinese cabbage
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Dash sesame oil


  • #In general, noodles are more popular in northern and eastern China, than in other parts of the country. Noodles make a popular snack in Chinese tea houses.# Heat the oil in the wok and add the chicken cut into thin shreds. Stir-fry for 2-3  minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the noodles in boiling salted water until just tender — about 6-8 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under hot water. Toss in the colander to drain and leave to dry.
  • Add the shredded Chinese cabbage and green onions to the chicken in the wok along with the soy sauce, pepper and sesame oil. Cook about 1 minute and toss in the cooked noodles. Stir well and heat through. Serve immediately. #TIME# Preparation takes about 10 minutes, cooking takes 6-8 minutes. #VARIATION# Pork may be used instead of the chicken. Add fresh spinach, shredded, if desired and cook with the Chinese cabbage. #BUYING GUIDE# Shanghai noodles are available in Chinese supermarkets and also some delicatessens. If unavailable, substitute tagliatelle or dried Chinese noodles.
