Pad See-Ew


  • 4 ounces boneless chicken, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 4 teaspoons light soy sauce, divided
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces flat rice noodles
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets, sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sweet dark soy sauce


  1. Combine the chicken with 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and baking soda in a bowl. This quick marinade will tenderize the meat. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the oyster sauce, remaining 2 teaspoons soy sauce, sugar, rice vinegar, and minced garlic to create your stir-fry sauce.
  3. Cook the rice noodles in boiling water according to package instructions. Drain and toss with a tablespoon of oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Blanch the marinated chicken in boiling water until it turns white. Remove and set aside in a large bowl.
  5. Heat oil in a wok over high heat. Stir-fry the broccoli until bright green and tender-crisp. Transfer to the bowl with the chicken.
  6. Clean and dry the wok, then add 2 tablespoons of oil over high heat. Scramble the eggs, then add the noodles. Toss to separate the strands and let them cook for a minute.
  7. Drizzle sweet soy sauce over the noodles, toss, and let them brown for about a minute. Reintroduce the chicken and broccoli to the wok. Add the prepared sauce and stir-fry until everything is well-coated and heated through. Serve your delicious pad see-ew immediately!
