- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- In a bowl, toss the chicken with the oyster sauce and let stand for 20 minutes.
- In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the noodles until al dente. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Drain and reserve.
- In a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the carrots, onion and bell pepper and stir-fry over high heat for 1 minute. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the baby corn, scallions, edamame, garlic and ginger and stir-fry until the chicken is white throughout, 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to moderate.
