Stir-fry egg noodles with chicken and veggie

I just finished a relaxed and joyful vacation in Hong Kong during the Christmas holidays.  Since I love eating and enjoy cooking very much, I always spent time on walking around wet markets and shops which sell cutlery, tableware and cooking utensils in the trip.  I like wandering along Shanghai Street in Yau Ma Tei.  It is like a centre of kitchenware.  There are some traditional Chinese kitchenware shops which are selling everything from professional kitchenware for food and beverage industry to daily use kitchen utensils like Chinese knifes and chopping boards, bamboo steamers, etc.  I bought some items there, one of them is a pair of long wooden chopsticks for cooking noodles.  I will let you know what I bought there and write a post to introduce more about Shanghai Street in the coming days.

 Stir-fried noodles are a perfect way to create a hearty, quick, and healthy one-dish meal.  I prefer cooking and eating healthy food.  I use less oil in this recipe.
