Chinese-Style Egg Noodles With Chicken and Mung Bean Sprouts
The mung bean sprout is an edible sprout with a crisp texture that is commonly used in East Asian stir-fry dishes. Ever since I was a kid, I've loved these sprouts—not only because they're delicious, but also because they're easy to cultivate.
Egg noodles are also common in East Asian cuisine. These noodles are made with eggs and flour, and they are often considered to be a comfort food.
