IF YOU'RE USING DRIED NOODLES, cook according to package instructions, then
cool them in cold water until you're ready to use them. If you're using
fresh Chinese noodles, boil them for 3-to-5 minutes, then immerse in cold
water. Using a cleaver or sharp knife, slice the chicken into shreds 2
inches long. Mix chicken with the 2 teaspoons of light soy sauce and rice
wine or sherry in a small bowl. Mix well. Let the chicken marinate at room
temperature about 10 minutes. Heat a wok or large skillet. Add the 2
teaspoons of oil, then the chicken shreds. Stir-fry about 2 minutes, then
transfer to a plate. Clean the wok. Drain the noodles, shaking off as much
water as possible. Reheat the pan, add the 1 tablespoon of oil and garlic.
Stir-fry for 10 seconds, then add the snow peas and ham. Stir-fry about 1
minute, then add the noodles, sugar, 1 teaspoon of soy sauce and scallions.
Continue to stir-fry about 2 minutes, then return the chicken to the noodle
mixture. Continue to stir-fry about 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken is
cooked. Add the sesame oil and give the mixture a few final stirs. Turn
onto a warm platter and serve at once.
