Stirred Fried Chicken with Dark Sauce

4th of 8, this dish always reminds me of home. I tried this recipe a few times, it will be best if you cut the chicken meat into cubes. This dish not only good to go with a bowl of rice, it is also quite tasty  with noodle or instant noodle. The sauce of this dish can match very well with noodle or instant noodle. Sometime, I will soak the noodle in a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes, dry it and stirred fry together with the chicken.
