- 3 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar

Heat a large pot of water until it comes to a roaring boil. Season with salt. Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain the noodles, drizzle with 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and cover to keep warm.
In a small bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons oyster sauce, 1-2 tablespoons chile sauce, and 2 teaspoons cornstarch. Set aside.
Heat 3 tablespoons of sesame oil in a large skilet. Add the chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes - no need for it to cook all the way through.
Add the vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes, covered. Add the sauce, water chestnutes, and noodles to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook for an additional minute or two to allow the flavors to combine.
Serve and enjoy.
