GUNG HAY FAT CHOY!!  I had such a blast appearing on Live with Kelly & Ryan to kick off the Lunar New Year!!   Check out my segment here…

I made these Lunar New Year Long Life Noodles with rotisserie chicken on the show but you can omit (like the only veggie version I did for  Melissa’s Produce).  You can also use whatever veggies you’d like such as eggplant, bok choy, broccoli, asparagus!!  My favorite oil to use is Garcia de la Cruz Organic Olive Oil.

Lunar New Year Long Life Noodles


  • 8 ounces dried spaghetti or linguine
  • 8 small dried black or shitake mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons Garcia de la Cruz olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup (50 g) bean sprouts
  • ½ cup (51 g) snow peas, tips and strings removed, julienned
  • 4 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 8 ounces shredded cooked rotisserie chicken


  1. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Rinse, drain and set aside.
  2. Soak mushrooms in hot water for 15 to 20 minutes, or until soft. Rinse in cold water and drain. Squeeze out any excess water. Remove and discard stems and set aside.
  3. Blanch the snow peas in boiling water, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pea pods to an ice bath for 1 minute. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat the oil in a wok or large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  5. Add the red pepper and reserve black mushrooms and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the bean sprouts, snow peas and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, white pepper and sugar and stir-fry until blended, about 1 minute. Add the shredded chicken and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the reserve noodles and toss until coated. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately.

Wishing you and your family luck, wealth, happiness, good fortune, prosperity and long life in the New Year!!
