Chinese Style Noodles With Leftover Vegetables

Late last night suddenly I got a craving for Chinese food. It was too late for takeout, and there was a bunch of half chopped vegetables I saw lying around in the fridge. So, I made this on a whim. I am not a very chef-y person, I just like throwing in whatever I feel tastes good together.

Chicken Chowmein

Ingredients (3-4 servings) - 3 chopped garlic cloves, 1 tsp chopped ginger, 1 red onion sliced (there were 2 halves lying around for some reason so, I used it all up), 1 broccoli stalk chopped (the heads had gone yellow), 1/2 green bell pepper thinly sliced(julienne), red chilli flakes, dried parsley, black pepper,1 tbspn dark soy sauce, 2 eggs beaten, 50 gm boneless chicken cubes, Olive oil for frying. (You can add mushrooms too if you have any available).

Method - Scramble the eggs and set aside. Heat oil in a pan, add garlic, ginger, black pepper. Add the onion, fry till translucent. Add the broccoli stalk(soft inner part only, peel away the skin), bell pepper. After a minute or two add the chicken, salt and more pepper(ya I love pepper). Stir in the boiled noodles when the chicken is cooked. Add chilli flakes (I added lots of it), parsley, soy sauce. Add a cup of the starchy water water in which you boiled the noodles to give it a more gravy like consistency, skip this if you like hakka style noodles. Mix it well with the fried egg.
Eat. Repeat.
