Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound fresh plain chicken sausages, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 4 ounces snow peas, cut in half
  • 2 fresh, hot long red chiles seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 pound fresh or dried Chinese egg noodles, cooked
  • 1 cup chicken stock mixed with 3 tablespoons of hoisin sauce and 2 teaspoons of cornstarch
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup slivered basil leaves

Preparation

  1. In a wok, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the chicken sausage and stir-fry over high heat, breaking it up, until just cooked through, 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in the wok. Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry over moderately high heat until golden, 1 1/2 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the snow peas and chiles for 1 minute. Add the orange juice and stir over moderately high heat for 30 seconds. Add the sausage, noodles and stock mixture, season with salt and stir-fry until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the basil and serve.
