Heat oil until very hot. Deep fry the rice noodles

side). Put on a platter. Crush them with a fork or
chopsticks.

Cut the chicken into 1/4 inch cubes. Marinate with

Make a thin pancake with the beaten eggs, cut into
1/4 inch cubes.

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a pan. Stir fry the
mushrooms, the bamboo shoot, the green beans, and the
ham. After 1 minute add fried chicken, egg cubes, and
seasoning sauce. Stir fry over high heat until
mixture thickens. Then, add the white leeks. Turn off
the heat right away. Put on platter over fried rice
noodles.

Serve with Mandarin Dan Bing or spring roll skin
which will be used to wrap around the meat and noodle
mixture.
