1 teaspoon oil
1/4 ounce green onion, minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chile paste
4 ounces ground chicken, cooked
14 ounces egg noodles, cooked

Liquid Mixture

2 ounces soy sauce
1 ounce cooking wine
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
7 ounces chicken stock


Heat wok or large skillet, add 1 tsp. oil and sear the chile paste, garlic and green onion for 5 seconds, using caution to avoid inhaling the direct fumes.

Add cooked ground chicken, tossing and stirring for 10 seconds. Add all the liquid ingredients and simmer for 20 seconds.

Add a "slurry," equal parts of cornstarch and water mixed together (a tsp. or two of each) to thicken the sauce. Consistency should be thick enough to stand on top of the noodles.

Pour sauce over a serving plate of hot cooked noodles. Garnish with bean sprouts and julienned cucumbers.

Full of flavor. Agreed, it is a bit salty, but overall...DELICIOUS! My husband went NUTS for it!

I thought this tasted very close to PF CHangs. I did use low sodium soy sauce but that's because that's all Iever buy. My store carries asian egg noodles and they are different than the suggested angel hair, they have a different consistency so I would try to find them if you can.

Great recipe. I'm so happy that I don't have to spend money on takeout Dan Dan anymore. Use low-sodium soy sauce though as it was a little too salty.

This recipe was very disappointing. It was extremely salty and tasted nothing like PF Chang's version.

This is easy and taste just like PF Chang's. I looked up on a few other sites what kind of noodles to use and one mentioned that if you couldn't find egg noodles to just use angel hair which is what I did. It worked out just fine. This is a good and easy dinner for weeknights.

Hi there, I am trying to find out what type of egg noodles to use. There are tons available in the market. Any ideas?
