Yang Kee Noodle Firecracker Chicken


Dan Huckestein, co-owner of Yang Kee Noodle, says that you can buy the prepared firecracker sauce bottled at the restaurant.



  1. Cook flat noodles according to package instructions. Strain noodles, and set aside.
  2. In deep fryer or large stockpot, heat oil to 425 degrees F.
  3. Break apart rice vermicelli into large pieces before cooking. Drop pieces into in hot oil. They will instantly expand and puff up. Remove immediately, and drain on paper towel.
  4. Place soy sauce, sugar, chili paste, sherry and sesame oil in saucepan, and bring to simmer over low heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often. Turn off heat, and reserve sauce.
  5. Heat grapeseed or safflower oil in wok or skillet over high heat. Add chicken, and cook, stirring. When chicken is opaque and just beginning to brown (about 5 minutes), add broccoli, onions, water chestnuts and walnuts; stir to combine. Add chicken broth, and sauté until vegetables are crisp-tender, another 5 minutes or so. Add noodles and sauce, stirring well until all ingredients are hot.
  6. Garnish with fried rice vermicelli.
