  • 1 (16 ounce) package rice noodles

  • 6 tablespoons oyster sauce

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, or more as needed

  • 1 medium onion, sliced

  • 1 bulb shallot, chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste

  • 1 pound boneless chicken, thinly sliced

  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced into strips

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 sprigs fresh basil, leaves removed and torn


  1. Place rice noodles into a bowl. Fill the bowl with hot water and separate noodles with a fork or your hands. Soak until softened, about 45 minutes.

  2. When noodles have been soaking for 30 minutes, whisk oyster sauce, sugar, vinegar, and lime juice together in a bowl until smooth; set aside.

  3. Pour enough oil into a wok or large skillet to coat the bottom; set over medium-high heat. Add onion, shallot, and garlic to hot oil; cook and stir until fragrant and slightly softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chicken and bell pepper; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Move chicken mixture to one side of the wok.

  4. Pour beaten egg into the empty side of the hot wok; cook until it becomes slightly set, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip egg and cook until set, 1 to 2 minutes more. Break egg apart with a fork and stir into chicken mixture. Mix in reserved sauce and basil.

  5. Drain noodles, then add to chicken mixture. Cook and stir until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.
