For the marinade:
- Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and reserve.
For the sauce:
In a large bowl, combine all marinade ingredients and add chicken. Let stand for 30 minutes.
Heat pan to high and add oil. Add garlic and cook until light brown. Add noodles to pan and cook until tender, about 2 minutes.
Add ginger, bok choy, and mushrooms and let cook for about 30 seconds. Add the chicken with marinade and cook for about two minutes or until chicken is almost cooked, while continually stirring.
Add sauce mixture and cornstarch slurry, let come to a boil for about 1 to 2 minutes. It should thicken up. Add more cornstarch slurry if necessary. Garnish with green onions.
