1 tablespoons garlic, minced
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 lb chicken thighs, skinned, deboned and diced
1/2 lb cooked shrimp
1 cup straw mushrooms
1/2 lb sugar snap peas, cleaned (or other vegetables)

  2. Stir fry ginger and garlic in cooking oil.

  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

  4. Fry chicken with ginger and garlic, continue to cook until chicken is brown.

  5. While chicken cooks, heat 1.5 tablespoons oil over medium-high to high heat in a separate skillet. Add the noodles. Quickly spread them out to the edges of the pan, and then let them cook, without stirring, until they are browned on the bottom (5 - 8 minutes). Carefully invert cake onto prepared plate. Return skillet to medium heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and brown (another 3 minutes)

  6. Add mushrooms and sugar snap peas to the chicken. Then add 1/2 cup chicken stock, oyster sauce, and sugar.

  7. Mix cornstarch with remaining 1 cup chicken broth separately and add to stir-fry mixture.

  8. Cook until the mixture begins to thicken, then add shrimp. When shrimp is heated through, server over noodles.
