Cook the udon noodles
While the water heats and the udon cooks, prepare the chicken.
Prep and brown the chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips; season generously with salt and pepper.
Prep the vegetables and the garnish
- Trim the ends from the celery; thinly slice the celery on the diagonal.
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into 1-inch pieces.
- 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.
- If desired, strip the cilantro leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the cilantro.
Cook the vegetables; finish the chicken
- In a small bowl, using a whisk or fork, mix together the arrowroot powder and chicken broth to form a slurry.
Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan. Stir the arrowroot slurry to recombine, then add the slurry, sesame stir-fry seasoning, and as much sambal oelek as you like. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Measure the onion.
- Stir the arrowroot slurry.
- Garnish with the cilantro, sesame seeds, and scallions.
