How to cook Stir-fried Sweet Potato Noodles?

I am working full time and this means that after work, it will take enormous effort to cook and let alone, wash. I go for easy recipes and I would like to share with you my cooking experience. I hope that we will inspire each other to enjoy cooking and eating home-cooked food.

Everyone's taste buds and preferences are different so I would not be sharing exact amount of ingredients. The most enjoyable part of cooking is to understand your family's taste buds and taste your food while cooking - taste, adjust, taste again, adjust again.

For this dish, you need the following:

Sweet Potato Noodles
- I bought mine at a Korean Supermarket. It could also be purchased at Cold Storage.
- Marinate the chicken with bulgogi sauce. For busy people, it could be done just 15 mins before.
Cai Xin
- I always choose Cai Xin because it is supposedly healthier and able to cure coughs.
Tomatoes and Mushrooms
- ability to prevent tumors

Sauces and sides
Bulgogi Sauce
Sesame Oil
Sesame seeds 
Black soya sauce
Sliced Old Ginger

Now, let's start the cooking adventure. To cook the sweet potato noodles, I placed them in boiling water for around 15 minutes. 
In a separate pot, I fried the ginger with olive oil. For health nuts, you need to select olive oil that specially states that it could be used for stir-frying. Other types of olive oil would turn toxic on high heat. 
Next, I added a small amount of sesame oil. It would smell very fragrant and that would be the time to add in the chicken parts, mushrooms and tomatoes. I stir fried them and added black soya sauce and Bulgogi sauce. Be very careful with Bulgogi as it could cause the dish to be overly sweet and it would be a disaster. 

I then poured sufficient water to cover the chicken and covered the pot to simmer the chicken for 5 minutes. I added the noodles and mixed it with a pair of wooden chopsticks to prevent breaking the noodles for amateurs like me. I added in my vegetables last so that they would remain fresh and green. I covered the pot again to allow the noodles to soak up the sauce. 

Lastly, add salt to taste and it is ready to be served with a dash of sesame seeds. Enjoy!
