“This noodle dish is a great favourite of many dim-sum diners in Hong Kong and Canton. In fact, I love it so much I tend to order it whenever I can. Pan-fried so that thin, crispy fresh egg noodles are browned on both sides, and then served with a shredded chicken sauce, it makes a wonderful finale to any dim sum meal. As with noodles in general, this dish is enjoyable anytime and one can see people eating it throughout the day, not just after dim-sum.
It combines the crispy texture of the noodles with the softness and blandness of the chicken breasts. In this recipe the chicken is velveted, that is, coated with egg white and cornflour, to keep the meat moist and tender. The result is a comfort dish elevated to a simple culinary delight.” – Ken Hom
