  1. Pound chicken breasts to 1/2 inch thick. Marinate in Hoisin sauce 30 minutes (or up to 4 hours).
  2. Chop scallions and set the green part aside.
  3. Combine all sauce ingredients and mix well. Grill chicken over medium heat about 5 minutes each side or until cooked through. Slice diagonally.
  4. Cook noodles according to package directions (mine were "boil 1 minute").
  5. Heat oil in a large pan or wok over medium heat. Add scallions, ginger and garlic. Cook until fragrant (about 1 minute). Add red pepper slices and cook 1 minute.
  6. Add cooked noodles, bean sprouts, sliced chicken and sauce. Stir over medium heat until sauce is thickened (about 2 minutes). Top with scallion greens and pea shoots.
