    1. 1
      In a medium, non-reactive bowl, combine the chicken with 2 1/2 teaspoons of white sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar and 1/4 cup soy sauce. Mix this together and coat the chicken well. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
    2. 2
      In another medium bowl, combine the chicken broth, water, sesame oil and ground black pepper with the remaining sugar, vinegar and soy sauce. In a separate small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch with some of this mixture and slowly add to the bulk of the mixture, stirring well. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Cook the linguine according to package directions, drain and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a wok or large saucepan over high heat until it starts to smoke. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Transfer this and all juices to a warm plate.
    4. 4
      Heat the remaining vegetable oil in the wok or pan over high heat. Add the ginger, garlic, mushrooms and green onions, and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the reserved sauce mixture and then the chicken. Simmer until the sauce begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Add the reserved noodles and toss gently, coating everything well with the sauce.

      I have a question. It says to add 2 1/2 tsp of sugar to the chicken. Later on it says to add remaining sugar to the chicken broth mixture. How much sugar am I supposed to add to the chicken broth mix. Thanks.

      AWESOME! After trying so many other recipes, this one knocked it out of the park. I have made several times and the sauce is the bomb! Last night I used some leftover Roast Chicken and just added a bit of Teriyaki Sauce to it to mimic the marinade of this recipe and it blew us away. The only thing I do different is a make a sauce for the pasta (which I got from another recipe - do not remember where as I searched for a long time to find the right recipe) which I do after the pasta is cooked and before I add it to the rest of the ingredients - I use 2 T, Peanut Oil, 1 T. Sesame Oil, 3 T. Oyster Sauce, 1 1/2 T. soy sauce and 1 1/2 t. Rice Vinegar. I know it adds more oil, but it does lift the dish to another level. Oh and I do add additional veggies, like water chestnuts and a mix of other Chinese Vegetables (I cheat and buy a can of them) Thanks Mosma for a great recipe!

      I rotate my protein dishes all month long (beef, chicken, fish, legumes round and round) and am going to add this recipe as one of my routine chicken nights. I added baby corn as suggested by another reviewer, and then included a few sliced water chestnuts instead of the mushrooms for our preferences. Also, added a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. Love the taste of the marinated chicken, and so tender. I like that I can get it all prepped ahead and don't start making it until I hear the garage doors open. Served it last with a citrus salad on the side, nice combination.
