Turmeric flavoured chicken noodles

In this chicken noodle, turmeric flavour will be more, though using oyster sauce or soya sauce. This easy and quick recipe. If you are able to get chopped Chinese stir fry vegetables and boiled rice noodles in the super store, it is more easy and quick, I will say more comfortable recipe on lazy days or any left over vegetables and left over roasted or boiled chicken is left, you can use this recipe. It is a one pan or one pot dish, but very quick. After adding the sauce, always taste the seasoning, so that can add more sauce if required. I have used mung bean noodles, you can use rice noodles. This dish, you can call it as a Singapore noodles, as it has many variations. For the sauce, I have used oyster sauce, sesame oil and soya sauce, you can avoid oyster sauce.
