Marinate the sliced chicken with soy sauce, white pepper, sugar, and Mirin for 5-10 minutes.

To prepare the sauce, mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, white pepper, and black vinegar.

In a pan, drizzle in a generous amount of oil and turn the heat to medium-high.

Once the pan is hot, add in sliced shallots, garlic & ginger, sliced shiitake mushroom, and fish sauce. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Next, add in chicken and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.

Add in the sliced cabbage and shredded carrot, and mix.

Pour in 0.5 cups of water and put the lid on, and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add in the noodles, pour in the sauce, mix everything. Put the lid on and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Add in green onion, turn the heat up to high, sauté on high heat for another 1-2 minutes.

Lastly drizzle the sesame oil over to get that Umami added flavour at the end, or sprinkle with sesame seeds.
