Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup shaoxing wine
  • 1/2 cup oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallion whites, save green for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek
  • 1 pound skinless chicken meat. I prefer the leg/thigh meat, but breast may be substituted
  • Canola oil to cook
  • 6 cloves garlic sliced thin
  • 2 cups shiitake mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 4 heads baby bok choy, core out, sliced
  • 1 pound blanched and refreshed lo mein noodles
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the shaoxing. Mix in the oyster sauce, ginger scallions, pepper and sambal. Mix in the chicken and marinate for at least 2-hours, preferably overnight. In a hot wok coated with oil, add the garlic and shiitakes and stir-fry for 4 minutes until the mushrooms are soft. Set mushrooms aside and in the same wok, add the chicken and cook for 6 to 8 minutes. Add the stock and season with salt and pepper. Add the bok choy and cook another 3 minutes. Add back the shiitakes and the noodles. Completely coat and heat the noodles. Check for seasoning.
