    1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the ramen noodles until soft, about 3 minutes. Plunge the noodles into cold water to stop the cooking, drain in a colander and drizzle the noodles with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Set aside.
    2. Place the chicken strips in a bowl, and toss with olive oil, garlic salt, and black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok over high heat, and cook and stir the chicken until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shallots and garlic, and cook and stir until they start to turn brown. Add the cabbage, carrots, broccoli, and mushrooms, and cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
    3. Stir in the ramen noodles, soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, and oyster sauce, mixing the noodles and sauces into the vegetables and chicken. Bring the mixture to a simmer, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve hot.

    I am indonesian, and this dish tastes really good and just like the original indonesian fried noodles. I left out salt since the sauce added the saltiness to the dish. I also reduced the amount of soy , oyster and Indonesian sweet soy sauce ( a little bit less than 1/4 cup each ). I will definitely put this on my regular menu list.  -  05 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fantastic! I also used garlic powder in place of the garlic salt. Also doubled the cabbage & used a bag of stir-fry veggies. We all loved it!  -  24 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an easy, yummy recipe. I didn't have shallots, broccoli, or mushrooms, so I used extra carrots and cabbage and added a bag of frozen stir-vegetables. I also left out the oyster sauce. I would definitely say that this recipe doesn't need any added salt, though. The soy sauce makes it plenty salty. This recipe is really easy and tastes great!  -  21 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
