Cooking Steps

  1. Cook chicken

    Cook chicken

    Preheat oven to 325°F. Bring a medium pot of water to boil over high heat. Pat chicken dry with paper towel and season all over with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add chicken and sear until cooked through and no longer pink, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Reserve pan, off heat, for Step 6.

  2. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    While chicken cooks, rinse all produce. Pick cilantro leaves, discarding stems. Trim and discard scallion roots and thinly slice, keeping whites and light greens separate from dark greens. Mince pickled ginger.

  3. Toast Sriracha cashews

    Toast Sriracha cashews

    On a baking sheet, toss cashews with Sriracha powder (use half for milder flavor), 1 teaspoon olive oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Transfer to oven and toast until golden and fragrant, 8-12 minutes. Oven strengths vary, and nuts can burn quickly, so keep an eye on these as they roast.

  4. Cook long life noodles

    Cook long life noodles

    Season boiling water generously with salt. Over a clean, dry surface, use your hands to gently separate long life noodles. Add noodles to boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until al dente, 2-3 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup noodle cooking water, then drain and rinse under cold water for 30 seconds to stop cooking.

  5. Make sauce

    Make sauce

    In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, scallion whites and light greens, pickled ginger, and reserved noodle cooking water to combine.

  6. Plate chicken

    Plate chicken

    Cut chicken into bite-size pieces, then return to pan over medium-high heat. Add sauce and long life noodles and toss to fully coat. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired, then divide between serving bowls. Garnish with pea shoots, cilantro, scallion dark greens, and Sriracha cashews. Dig in!
