My today's Chicken noodles is an interesting recipe which is prepared using a over night marinated chicken pieces. The chicken is marinated along with a regular Chinese sauces and 5 spice powder. The marination technique enhances the taste and flavour of the dish. I have used Shanxi sliced noodles which can also be replaced with Hakka or any variety of noodles. No extra sauces required while cooking, as the marination contains all the required flavours.
