Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a bowl, toss the chicken with the soy sauce, ginger, sherry, molasses and sesame oil; let stand for 15 minutes.

  • Preheat the broiler. Cover the noodles with hot water and let stand until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain the noodles and cut them into 3-inch lengths.

  • Prick the sausages several times and broil, turning once, for about 5 minutes, or until the Chinese sausages are crisp or the Italian sausages are cooked through. Let cool slightly, then thinly slice on the diagonal. In a small bowl, combine the chiles, fish sauce and lime juice.

  • Preheat the oven to 375°. Lightly oil a 3-quart baking dish. Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the garlic and cook over high heat until golden. Add the chicken and stir-fry until opaque. Add the shiitakes, snow peas and oyster sauce and cook until the snow peas turn bright green, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Stir the dissolved cornstarch, add it to the skillet and stir-fry until the sauce thickens slightly.

  • Spread the noodles in the prepared baking dish and spoon the chicken and then the sausage on top. Cover with foil and bake for about 8 minutes, or until heated through. Top with the cilantro and serve with the chile sauce.
