  • 4 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1-3 tsp Sriracha hot sauce, depending on how much heat you like
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  1. Prepare all of your vegetables for stir fry - chop shred slice. :) Place in bowl and set aside.
  2. Grate Ginger on the fine part of your shredder.
  3. Slice chicken.
  4. Heat water in pot to boiling. Cook noodles until soft. (ramen noodles don't take long, don't over cook, they will be mushy) Place noodles in colander and toss with a little sesame oil to keep them from sticking. Set aside.
  5. Whisk together worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, ketchup, sriracha and sugar in small bowl. Set aside.
  6. Heat oil in a wok (or the largest skillet you own!) until almost smoking. (watch closely) Add grated ginger and quickly stir fry for one minute. Add chicken and cook until no loner pink. Add vegetables and prepared sauce, stir fry for about 5 - 8 minutes or until vegetables are just getting soft yet still crisp.
  7. Toss in noodles until coated. ( I do this in a separate large pot)
  8. Serve and Enjoy!
