Wash produce before use
Soak the glass noodles
While the noodles soak, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Cut a small corner from the ground chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
Cook the chicken and sauce; finish the noodles
Add the stir-fry blend, chicken broth, noodles, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the noodles are tender, 2 to 3 minutes, adding more water if the sauce is dry. Stir in the carrots and cabbage and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, discard the chiles, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Time the noodles while they soak.
- Separate the white and green parts of the scallions.
- Measure the water for the sauce.
- Garnish with the scallions.
