Marcia Kiesel's modern version of this Chinese-American dish includes stir-fried egg noodles with chicken sausage, chiles, basil and an unexpected ingredient—orange juice.

  1. 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  2. 1 pound fresh plain chicken sausages, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  3. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  5. 4 ounces snow peas, cut in half
  6. 2 fresh, hot long red chiles, seeded and thinly sliced
  7. 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  8. 1/2 pound fresh or dried Chinese egg noodles, cooked
  9. 1 cup chicken stock mixed with 3 tablespoons of hoisin sauce and 2 teaspoons of cornstarch
  10. Salt
  11. 1/2 cup slivered basil leaves
  1. In a wok, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the chicken sausage and stir-fry over high heat, breaking it up, until just cooked through, 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in the wok. Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry over moderately high heat until golden, 1 1/2 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the snow peas and chiles for 1 minute. Add the orange juice and stir over moderately high heat for 30 seconds. Add the sausage, noodles and stock mixture, season with salt and stir-fry until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the basil and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Pair this with a fruity sparkling wine. Italian Prosecco's lemon-lime flavor is great with Asian dishes.
