  • In a bowl or baking dish, toss chicken with 1 cup orange juice concentrate, cornstarch, chili garlic sauce, and ginger. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and hold in a bowl of cold water.

  • Remove chicken from refrigerator and drain into a colander; discard marinade.

  • In a large skillet, combine chicken stock, remaining 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate, and oyster sauce. Cook sauce over medium-high heat until liquids reduce and sauce is thick, about 5 to 10 minutes.

  • While sauce is reducing, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add red pepper, peas, mushrooms, and green onions. Saute until tender yet still crisp. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • Heat a non-stick wok or large skillet over high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan and heat. Carefully drop 1/3 of the chicken into the wok and stir-fry so that all sides of the chicken get crispy. When the first 1/3 is fully cooked through, remove from pan and repeat with the remaining 2 portions.

  • Add all of the cooked chicken and sauteed vegetables to the skillet with the sauce and toss to combine.

  • Drain noodles and then add to pan with sauce. Stir to coat noodles with sauce. Transfer to a large serving platter.
