- To begin, prepare the meat and vegetables for stir frying. Peel and grate the ginger with a cheese grater. Peel and grate the carrots with a large holed cheese grater. Remove the core from the cabbage and cut into thin strips. Slice the onion into thin strips. Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Slice the chicken into thin strips.
- Begin boiling a medium pot full of water for the noodles. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the grated ginger, saute for about 30 seconds to one minute (but don’t let it burn). Add the chicken strips and cook until they are no longer pink (about five minutes).
- Once the chicken is cooked through, add all off the vegetables. Stir and cook until wilted (5-10 minutes). Meanwhile, once the water boils, add the noodles and cook just until tender ( 2-3 minutes). Drain and rinse with cold water.
- In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, ketchup, siracha, and sugar. Use only 1/2 tsp of siracha if you don’t want it spicy. Stir until the ketchup and sugar are dissolved. Pour the sauce into the skillet with the chicken and vegetables with the heat is on medium high. Add the noodles, stir to coat everything in the sauce, and heat through (a few minutes).
