This superfast stir-fry is overflowing with traditional Asian spices and comes together in under 20 minutes. If you don't have or can't find oyster sauce, clam juice or fish sauce will work in its place. Rice noodles are more firm and don't turn mushy after being sautéed in the pan, but feel free to use fine udon noodles instead. Or spoon the chicken mixture over a bed of brown rice. That will be equally savory and likely save you one ingredient at the supermarket. If you like heat, top your stir-fry with a bit more sambal oelek, a hot sauce made with red chiles, garlic, ginger, fish sauce, and sugar.
