Preparation steps

Cook the noodles in a large pan of boiling water for 3—5 minutes, then drain and refresh in cold water. Drain thoroughly, toss with 3 teaspoons of the sesame oil and set aside.
Combine the shredded chicken with all the marinade ingredients, mix well and marinate for about 10 minutes.
Heat a wok over a high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil and when very hot and slightly smoking add the shredded chicken. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes and then transfer to a plate. Wipe the wok clean. Add the noodles, soy sauces, rice wine or sherry, salt, pepper, sugar and scallions. Stir-fry for 2 minutes.
Reheat the wok until it is very hot, then add the remaining peanut oil. When the oil is slightly smoking add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Then add the snow peas and ham and stir-fry for about 1 minute.
Return the chicken and any juices to the noodle mixture. Stir-fry for 3—4 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked. Add the remaining sesame oil and give the mixture a few final stirs. Turn onto a warm platter and serve at once.
