Pad See Ew

Serves 2 people.
1 1b Chinese broccoli (or broccolini)
1 1b fresh flat rice noodles (refrigerated)
1 Tbsp sweet soy sauce (dark and thick)
1 large chicken breast sliced thinly
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1-2 Eggs
2 cloves garlic

This is my favorite dish to get at the local vietnamese/ thai restaurant. I absolutely love wide flat rice noodles and I was puzzled for the longest time why I couldn't find them with other dried rice noodles, and then I realized they are fresh and can be found in the refrigerated section of asian markets. I found a 1 lb package of fresh rice noodles for .70 cents today. What an unreal bargain! This dish is very simple and quick to make.
First cut the chinese broccoli into bite size pieces and cut the stems in half. Separate the rice noodles and cut them into 3/4 inch strips. Heat a wok or frying pan if you don't have a wok on high, then put in 2 Tbsp oil, Add garlic and quickly add the meat so the garlic doesn't burn. Stir quickly. When the meat looks cooked on all sides add rice noodles, and soy sauces. Scrape everything to the side and toss in the egg so it makes contact with the pan. Allow it to cook, then toss in the broccoli and allow to cook to your liking. Voila! Feel free to experiment and try different variations of sauces, you could even add a pinch of sugar to sweeten.
