  • 1 cup bean sprouts

  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  4. Add the minced garlic and onion, cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant and soft.
  5. Add the bell pepper, bean sprouts, and carrots, cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, cornstarch, and water. Stir well to combine.
  7. Add the cooked chow mein noodles to the skillet with the vegetables and pour the sauce mixture over the top.
  8. Stir to coat the noodles and vegetables evenly with the sauce.
  9. Return the cooked chicken to the skillet and toss everything together, allowing the noodles and chicken to heat through for about 2-3 minutes.
  10. Serve hot, garnished with sliced green onions.
